This important time was also observed at NATO Headquarters on Thursday, showing a legacy that includes peace, democracy and prosperity – things which have been very important for the Alliance.

Stoltenberg talked about how this agreement has greatly influenced our world by providing incomparable safety, wealthiness, and tranquility due to its brief yet powerful wording.

Brussels, the nucleus of NATO, was beautifully decorated for celebration. The Memorial Arch in Parc du Cinquantenaire held high the flag of NATO and many significant places like City Hall and Egmont Palace glowed under blue lights to pay visual tribute towards Alliance’s history. Famous Manneken Pis statue also joined with special NATO Day clothes on it.

The anniversary celebrations did not only happen in Brussels but also took place across NATO member countries, with a wide array of events organized from public talks to music shows all having the common theme of NATO blue. These events were not just about remembering the past accomplishments of NATO; they also served as a reminder for everyone that the Alliance is still dedicated to promoting peace and security in our world which keeps changing.

For NATO, when we think about the long run, this 75th-anniversary meeting in Brussels demonstrates the Alliance’s toughness, flexibility and constant cooperative attitude.
