International Simón Bolívar Prize
UNESCO created the International Simón Bolívar Prize on the initiative of the Government of Venezuela to reward individuals or institutions who have made a particularly meritorious contribution to the liberty, independence and dignity of peoples, and to the strengthening of solidarity among nations. The first laureates in 1983 were H.M. King Juan Carlos I of Spain, and Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa. The poster is based on a design by the artist Polev.
