Summary
UN Day marks the anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter.

UN Day marks the anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter and celebrates everything that the organization represents, and has achieved since it was established in 1947. The day was recommended in 1971 by the United Nations General Assembly that it be observed by the Member States as a public holiday. With the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the UN officially came into existence.
