On October 25th 2016 the United Nations Association in Canada, Prince George branch celebrated the 71st anniversary of the United Nations by having the UN flag raised on a local landmark: Mr. PG. Mr. PG is a statue, mascot and monument that welcomes travelers into the city of Prince George. The flag was raised on UN Day, October 24th, and was held all week. The landmark was also lit up blue at night, in celebration and honor of last year’s United Nations campaign of #UNBlue, where international landmarks such as the Great Wall of China, the Sydney Opera House, and the Pyramids of Giza were lit blue to honor the United Nation’s 70th anniversary.
