To the editor:
Oct. 24 is United Nations Day, the beginning of United Nations Week. It is important to honor our United Nations by displaying the U.N. flag. Young people should be taught about the United Nations in their social studies classes.
The U.N. flag is blue. Its center displays a white wreath containing a global outline of the continents. Flags may be obtained from the United Nations in New York. Flag etiquette forbids flying the U.N. flag below any national flag.
I am a world federalist. The United Nations is an embryonic world government. For human survival, some national sovereignty must be surrendered to a world federal government, especially in the areas of military power for peacekeeping, pollution control, protection of endangered species and providing resources to mitigate the poverty of 80 percent of the world.
Let us celebrate United Nations Week, Oct. 24-30.
