The Blue Beret

Originally an in-house publication for the troops, The Blue Beret has since its inception in 1964 grown into a magazine highlighting UNFICYP's main developments as well as the lighter fare that keeps a mission together. It appears every two months.

The magazine is available in PDF format.
