(2) 1995: In the event to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Foundation of The United Nations, a blue porcelain globe-shaped pot named “The Blue Star of Life” was presented by courtesy of the Township of Tobe, Ehime Prefecture, Japan, to the European Headquarters of the United Nations, viz. Palais des Nations in Geneva, which is still placed in the lobby adjacent to the room once used for the meeting of the Conference on Disarmament.
