51. Cold War - Non-Aligned

A direct result of the Cold War was the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) which was founded in 1961 by nations that did not align with either the Western or Soviet power blocs.

It was the brainchild of the Indian nationalist and politician V. K. Krishna Menon, and included in the Non-Aligned Movement Grouping is a rare and early Indian national flag dating from the 1947 √ʬ?¬? 19512 period

There are other of the NAM countries as well. It is important to note that membership in these power blocs was fluid: China, a communist country split politically and ideologically with the Soviet Union in 1960; √?¬†Albania an original signatory of the Warsaw Pact withdrew support in 1961and France nominally a Western democracy withdrew from NATO in 1966.


Also included here is a United Nations and a stylized Swiss military style color, who while not members of the NAM, personify the concept of neutrality.
