To be at the service of man, whatever his colour, race, behaviour or affiliation: is this ideal of human solidarity not exactly in line with the general theme of the Exhibition? Henry Dunant's work should therefore be represented in this manifestation of international benevolence.

The Red Cross abolishes frontiers to reach out to man in his hour of need, in time of peace as in time of war, whether he is facing external perils or the evils inflicted on him by other men.

This enormous protective network covers the whole world, 110 million members grouped in 77 national societies have rallied to this ideal of goodness.

The Red Cross Youth teaches children to be good "world citizens".

The pavilion represented the contribution of the Red Cross in its threefold form: the International Committee, the League of Societies and the national societies serving under the same banner: red cross on a white background.
