Heydar Aliyev Center’s building is lit up blue – UN’s symbol

On October 24, within a global campaign called “Turn the world UN blue” to mark the 70th anniversary of the United Nations Organization, the building of the Heydar Aliyev Center was lit up blue.


Joined by over 150 buildings, museums, bridges etc. in over 45 countries, the action was realized at the Center due to cooperation between the Heydar Aliyev Foundation and UN’s Board for the country.


By joining this action, the Heydar Aliyev Center demonstrates also their loyalty to UN principles, and the principles of prosperity.


Dedicated to the Day of UN, this campaign started from New Zeeland and continued with lighting up Australia’s Sydney Opera House. As the world’s architectural monuments joined this international action, UN’s blue wave travels countries and continents. From Australia’s Sydney Opera House to Great Pyramids in Giza city of Egypt, from the monument to Christ the Redeemer in Rio-de-Janeiro to Empire State Building in New-York city, a number of well-known monuments throughout the world were lit up blue. Among the participants of the action are Russia’s State Hermitage Museum, Jordan’s ancient Petra city, Italy’s Pizza Tower, Edinburgh Castle and Central Hall Westminster in the Great Britain, Table Mountain in South Africa, Japan’s SkyTree Tower, Spain’s Alhambra Palace, and many more other significant monuments.
