United Nations Security Council Resolution 57 was adopted unanimously on September 18, 1948.

Shocked by the death of Count Folke Bernadotte, the United Nations Mediator in Palestine, the Council requested that the Secretary-General keep the flag of the United Nations at half-mast for three days, authorized him to meet from the Working Capital Fund all the expenses connected with the brutal death of the United Nations Mediator and to be represented at the interment by the President of the person whom he may appoint for the occasion.
