In the days leading up to the “birthday” of the United Nations, the town hall of Heemstede will be illuminated in blue from October 19 to October 24. The Molentje van Groenendaal will also turn blue.
The United Nations will be exactly 75 years old on October 24, 2020. To mark this memorable moment, in the run-up to this, as many buildings, bridges, (church) towers, statues, squares and fountains in the Netherlands as possible will be put in blue light. Heemstede is happy to participate in this initiative out of appreciation for the activities of the United Nations.
The UN is still committed to global cooperation, especially in the areas of peace and security, sustainable economic and social development, human rights, humanitarian aid and international law.
