Whitehall among six buildings that ‘painted the town blue’

United Nations (UN) House and the Office of the Prime Minister at Whitehall were among six buildings that painted the town blue on Wednesday night in commemoration of the upcoming UN Day commemoration on October 24.

According to UN T&T, the expression of solidarity coincides with the 75th anniversary of the UNs founding charter taking effect on October 24, 1945.

City Hall in Port-of-Spain, the British High Commission and German Embassy in St. Clair, the National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA) and the NIB Building on Queens Park East also partnered with the UN Resident Coordinators Office by lighting the front facades of their buildings in blue.

British High Commissioner, Her Excellency Harriet Cross, and Acting Head of Mission at the German Embassy in Port-of-Spain, Monika Noy, were there to see the lights switched on at their shared diplomatic mission along St. Clair Avenue.

UN Resident Coordinator, Marina Walter, has expressed heartfelt gratitude to all the partners who shared in the celebration of this landmark milestone for the UN.
