The history behind the medal:

The United Nations held it's 50th anniversary in 1995. Many UN Veterans quite naturally wished to have a memory in the way of a medal or similar to remind them of the day.

Together with a Veteran Association in Norway - Bergen and Hordaland UN-Veteran Association, Bergen - were proofs for the medals and Diploma created. In the last part of 1995 The UN's 50th Anniversary Medal was finally produced.

The UN's 50th Anniversary Medal, which is approved by the President of The Nordic Blue Berets is regarded as personal property and is at present a commemorative medal.

As this medal is a Commemorative Medal serving and retired military personnel should wear it in accordance with the medal regulations which exist in their own country.
