Catch up with your mates and celebrate
Held annually on November 14, this is an official United Nations Day. The day celebrates the scientific achievements of the founders of insulin, this day being the birthday of one of the founders. The International Federation of Diabetes uses the blue circle as their logo, and is used in all promotions and events. The light blue circle is used as it is the colour of the sky and also the colour of the United Nations flag. In many cities around the world blue lighting is used to illuminate buildings to mark this day, including in the past, the London Eye and the Opera House in Sydney.
