  The Bonzer Bloom United Nations Human Rights Linker

Above. The sixty segmented Bonzer Bloom United Nations Human Rights navigation aid.

Above and Below. Brass plate with three small birds on the outside and a peacock in the centre. It's appropriate since there are sixty discs on the peacock's tail feathers from twenty five on the outer and  thirty five on the inner.

They're good to mark this year's sixtieth anniversary of the proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on 10 December 1948. The three small birds can represent a United Nations theme too. The top bird is for the United Nations Charter, with the left bird for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the right bird for it's binding, two part confirmation, in the two Covenants, covering five kinds of human rights. 

Above. Universal Declaration Of Human Rights represented by the purple triangle with centre dot.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is sixty years old this year, 2008. It was declared by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948, in part  A of Resolution 217 (III), International Bill of Human Rights. Part D is headed, PUBLICITY TO BE GIVEN TO THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS.  A quote from section 1 of part D appears in the introduction to printed versions of the Universal Declaration by the United Nations Publications Office, even though it's not stated as such. Nevertheless, their quotation marks imply that the words, publicise the text of the Declaration and....., do not come from Part D, but actually they do.

The Bonzer Bloom, United Nations Human Rights navigation aid has 60 numbered segments for the Universal Declaration's clauses and Preamble points unofficially given A-H identification. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is on the outside in the yellow petals. Segment one (Y) is on the San Francisco  UNCIO conference, at which the United Nations Charter was signed. Segment two (Z) is on the need to give publicity to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Segments three to ten cover the eight Preamble points consisting of seven "Whereas" points, followed by the General Assembly Proclamation.  

Article 2 has two separated sentences which are unofficially marked (a) and (b). However, (a) is hidden in the number 2 for simplicity, as are articles' clause 1. Clauses are shown via dots to be distinctive rather than adding a clutter of numbers.

The outside colour coded band shows which of the three main divisions, each UNDHR Article is in. It matches the inner band. These divisions are (A) General provisions, in purple,  including the preamble.  (B) ICCPR, Civil and Political rights, in orange (C) ICESCR, Economic Social and Cultural rights, in green.  The coloured band has changes of design to mark the five individual kinds of human rights. There are two in the ICCPR Covenant and three in the ICESCR Covenant.  Y and Z are marked differently on the colour band too.

The short code words mostly come from the Declaration's text. If not, it's marked in the band beside, with a two ball and cross design. The numbers in this band show the code word's numerical location in the Article or clause. A dot under the last letter shows that a letter or letters have been removed to keep within six. The letter N or E on a 1- 60 segment number shows if the Article or clause starts with Everyone or No one.
