Why this day is important and how it is celebrated”

In his first United National Day address, Secretary General António Guterres asked people to overcome their differences for a more successful future.

Stressing the importance of multilateralism, he reaffirmed the United States commitment to UN goals and said its objective "remains as essential today as ever before" - to have diverse nations cooperate 'to preserve sovereignty, enhance security, build prosperity, and promote human rights and fundamental freedoms'.

Basically, it is the United Nation's birthday, but there is more to it.

Today Marks UN's 72 AnniversaryPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, has by proclamation declared Tuesday, October 24, 2017, as "United Nations Day", and is to be observed throughout the country as a Working Holiday.

In 1971, the General Assembly adopted a further resolution declaring that United Nations Day shall be an global holiday and recommended that it should be observed as a public holiday by all member states.

In a directive to all central departments and administrations in states and Union territories, the ministry said every year October 24 is observed as United Nations Day when the UN flag is flown along with Indian national flag on all buildings on which the Tricolour is regularly flown. On this occasion, all the member states of the United Nations contribute finances to its operation to help further its goals.

So, here's wishing the United Nations a very happy birthday.

The Proclamation calls upon all Government ministries and agencies, worldwide organizations, United Nations Agencies near the Capital, schools and other institutions of learning, and citizens in general to cooperate with the Ministry of Education in organizing appropriate programs befitting the occasion. Keep up the good work!
