Central Hall Westminster turns blue for UN Day

Central Hall Westminster turned blue for UN Day
Central Hall Westminster joined a world-wide initiative to mark the 70 year anniversary of the formation of the United Nations (UN) by projecting blue light across the building, 70 years after the inaugural meeting of the UN in the same venue.

Iconic monuments, buildings and landmarks across the world projected blue light across their facades, the official colour of the United Nations, on ‘UN Day’, 24th October. Central Hall Westminster was the only English landmark to join the global initiative.

Central Hall Westminster was the chosen venue for the very first General Assembly of the newly formed United Nations - a time that saw the appointment of the first Secretary General, along with the creation of the Security Council and the International Court of Justice. 51 member countries sent delegations and Prime Minister Clement Attlee welcomed the UN to ‘this ancient home of liberty and order’.  

Central Hall’s in-house production solutions company White Light provided all the UN-coloured lighting equipment for the celebrations.
