During holidays and other important days to remember, Google , as being googly as always, has this habit in changing the header of the Google Homepage to fit in the celebration. In case you’re unaware of this event, this is the 1st part you see whenever you open www.google.com.ph (and other localized version). If you still dont know —> #GoogleMoLang .
In celebration of Philippines’ 119th Independence day, Google Philippines commemorated this wonderful event in our history with a special one-day only doodle on the google.com.ph homepage designed by Filipino illustrator Dan Matutina.
This year’s Independence Day doodle combines the beauty of the Philippine flag and the country’s unique island landscapes.
This is Google’s eighth Independence Day doodle for the Philippines, and it features Filipinos gathered around the Philippine flag for a flag raising ceremony while sunrise can be seen over the water, symbolizing the Filipinos’ optimism in the face of adversity.
The Philippine flag was first raised on June 12, 1898 in Kawit, Cavite as a symbol of the country’s independence from colonial rule. Now, flag raising ceremonies are held in all schools, government offices, Movie Last Full Shows and the likes while singing the Philippine National Anthem.
