On September 20

On this day in ...
... 1977 (35 years ago today), pursuant to recommendations received from the U.N. Security Council in July of the same year, the U.N. General Assembly voted to admit 2 countries as new member states.
Resolution A/RES/32/1 admitted to membership the Republic of Djibouti (flag above left), while Resolution A/RES/32/2 did the same for the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam (flag at right).
