I was just checking out the UN website and came across this:
Okay, I may be reaching but it looks a little like the Eye of Providence.
Today, the Eye of Providence is usually associated with Freemasonry. The Eye first appeared as part of the iconography of the Freemasons in 1797,
with the publication of Thomas Smith Webb's Freemasons Monitor. Here, it represents the all-seeing eye of God and is a reminder that a Mason's
thoughts and deeds are always observed by God (who is referred to in Masonry as the Grand Architect of the Universe). Typically, the Masonic Eye of
Providence has a semi-circular glory below the eye—often the lowest rays extend farther down.
See this for more detail:
ALL-SEEING EYE. An important symbol of the Supreme Being, borrowed by the Freemasons from the nations of antiquity. Both the Hebrews and the
Egyptians appear to have derived its use from the natural inclination of figurative minds to select an organ as the symbol of the function which it is
intended peculiarly to discharge. Thus, the foot was often adopted as the symbol of swiftness, the arm of strength, and the hand of fidelity. On the
same principle, the open eye was selected as the symbol of watchfulness, and the eye of God as the symbol of Divine watchfulness and care of the
universe. The use of the symbol in this sense is repeatedly to be found in the Hebrew writers.
Seeing as the UN was founded during the presidency of President Franklin D. Roosevelt who was supposedly a Freemason.
The name "United Nations", coined by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt, was first used in the "Declaration by United Nations" of 1
January 1942, during the Second World War, when representatives of 26 nations pledged their governments to continue fighting together against the Axis
On October 11, 1911 Roosevelt was initiated into Freemasonry at Holland Lodge Nr. 8 in New York City. Roosevelt was also present when his sons
became Masons in 1933 and 1935.
So is it too big a leap to say the Security Council sits in an All Seeing Eye?
