United Nations Day

On this day in 1945, the United Nations Charter was established and this anniversary date declared “United Nations Day.”  It’s a day devoted to making known—worldwide—the aims and achievements of this great body and appreciating the importance of its mission.

In 1971, the U.N. further resolved that United Nations Day be an international holiday and encouraged member nations to declare it a public holiday.  The United States declined to do so.
