The United Nations celebrates International Earth Day each year on the Northern vernal equinox. This year Earth Day falls on March 20th and will mark the 37th year of observance. The first Earth Day was celebrated on March 1st, 1970, in San
Francisco.

The Earth Day flag used today is a beautiful photographic image of the fully lit Earth,commonly known as the “Blue Marble”, and is now one
of the most widely published photographs in existence.
