The Organization of American States

Here is a picture of the logo for the Organization of American States.

Organization of American States (OAS), headquartered in Washington, D.C., United States, is an intercontinental organization of 35 member states, founded at Bogotá on 30 April 1948, for the purposes of regional solidarity and cooperation among its member states. The organization has been formed to promote economic, military, and cultural cooperation among its members, which include almost all of the independent states of the Western Hemisphere. The OAS's main goals are to prevent any outside state's intervention in the Western Hemisphere and to maintain peace and security between the various states, promote and strengthen democratic governments, prevent and resolve conflict between member states while respecting principles of nonintervention and prevent aggression against member states within the hemisphere.
