Winnie-the-Pooh as Honorary Ambassador of Friendship
Because humans love symbols, Nane Annan – the wife of former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan – named Pooh Bear an Ambassador of Friendship.
What seems strange at first glance is actually quite logical.
Because the little bear, who is loved by millions of people all over the
world, shows in his stories in an impressive way what loyalty and friendship
mean. These he shows not to another bear, but to a
little pig, a donkey, an owl, a rabbit, a kangaroo and a little boy.
