India to Host UN Flag


New Delhi: India said on Wednesday it will host the UN flag along with the national flag on all government buildings to mark the UN Day on October 24.

“The UN flag will be flown along with the national flag on all buildings on which the Indian national flag is regularly flown on October 24,” the home ministry said.

Since 1948, October 24 has been celebrated across the globe as the UN Day. But the UN flag will not be flown on Rashtrapati Bhawan, the vice president’s house, parliament house and the Supreme Court building.

The United Nations was established on October 24, 1945 after World War II to promote international cooperation.
