History of United Nations Day :-
The foundation of the ‘League of Nations’ was laid in the Treaty of Versailles, which was one of the treaties to formally end World War I. The treaty was signed on June 28, 1919 at Versailles, France. The purpose of the league was to encourage disarmament, prevent the outbreak of war, and promote negotiating diplomatic measures to settle international disputes and improve the quality of life around the world. However, after World War II, the League of Nations realized that we needed to operate in a different form. The idea of the United Nations developed in the last years of World War II, especially during the United Nations Conference in San Francisco, which began on April 25, 1945. The United Nations was officially created on 24 October of the same year when a United Nations Charter was ratified. United Nations Day was first celebrated on October 24, 1948. According to the recommendation of the United Nations, since 1971, United Nations Day should be a public holiday in member countries.
