The doodle for Indian independence day featured India’s national bird, the peacock, adorns the Google home page on India’s Independence Day. The peacock curves its neck backwards to form the ‘G’ of the Google logo. The other letters of the Google logo appear in ornate styling behind the peacock’s plume.
Google has been commemorating India’s Independence Day with a doodle on its home page since 2003. Most of the Google doodles had the Indian national flag as the inspiration. But the 2011 and 2012 doodles used other national symbols in place of the Tricolour. Last year a sketch of Delhi’s Red Fort took guard on the Google home page on 15th August.
