October 24 is celebrated as United Nations Day since 1948 to mark the anniversary of the entry into force of the UN Charter. The UN officially came into being with the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council. In 1971, the United Nations General Assembly recommended that the day be observed by member states as a public holiday.
