In June 1945, after the Second World War, 50 nations met in San Francisco and founded the United Nations. Today, 193 countries worldwide are members of the United Nations and try to defuse conflicts in the world peacefully and in multilateral exchange, to find solutions together and to promote human rights.
Luxembourg is a founding member of the United Nations and has assumed responsibility at the highest level on several occasions over the years.
The motif of the stamp shows the sculpture "Non-Violence" by the Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd, a gift from Luxembourg to the United Nations.
