Today's Reason to Celebrate

December 11, 2011 was

International Mountain Day

It’s International Mountain Day! This day was designated in 2001 by the United Nations General Assembly to create awareness about the important role that mountainous regions play in the global ecosystem. Mountains are essential to the world’s freshwater supply. They also safeguard many natural resources and protect communities against natural disasters.

The symbol for this holiday consists of three equilateral triangles on a single horizontal line. The left triangle has a blue diamond shape at the top, representing ice and snow on mountain peaks. The middle triangle has an orange circle, representing the resources that are continuously mined from the inside of mountains. The triangle on the right has a small green triangle at the base, representing the crops that grow on mountains. To learn more about this holiday and the events going on in your area, check out the official website.
