Welcome to the United Nations


On 03 October , MINURSO celebrated German Unity Day by raising the country’s flag at the Mission HQ in Laayoune.

Germany is the fourth largest contributor to Peacekeeping  Operations. Its peacekeepers are deployed in seven peacekeeping missions worldwide including MINURSO.

German Unity Day which falls on 3 October has been the German national holiday since 1990 when the former German Democratic Republic officially joined the Federal Republic of Germany. 

The German flag is a tricolor, made of three equal horizontal bands: black in the top, red in the middle and gold in the bottom. The black and gold combination relates to the colors on the semi-official coat of arms of the Holy Roman Empire.

Glückwunsch Deutschland !
