Milad Tower, Nature Bridge to be lit up blue for UN 70th anniv

Tehran, Oct 11, IRNA – On the occasion of UN70th Anniversary and through the efforts of Tehran Municipality, Milad Tower and Nature Bridge in Tehran will be lit up blue on Monday night 12 October 2015.

To help mark the 70th anniversary of the United Nations, iconic monuments, buildings, landscapes, museums, bridges, and other landmarks across the globe will be lit up blue – the official colour of the United Nations – on UN Day, 24 October 2015.

However, since 24 October this year coincides with Ashura in the mourning month of Moharram, the lit up blue initiative will be done in Tehran on Monday night 12 October 2015, the UN Information Center in Tehran (UNIC) reported on Sunday.

Iran is among the 51 founding members of the United Nations which signed UN Charter on 24 October 1945.
