Blue Helmets

In 2002, I asked Merriam-Webster the following question. Emily Arsenault replied as follows.

Q: U.N. peacekeeping forces are often called Blue Helmets. How much more evidence of usage of this term do you need for its inclusion in your Collegiate dictionary?

A: “Blue Helmet” is a proper noun and therefore essentially “nonlexical,” as we call such terms.
