The world’s most-used web search engine Google has created a doodle marking the 48th Independence Day of Bangladesh.
The doodle, featuring the national flag of Bangladesh, has been seen above the search box on the homepage of Google since early Monday, March 26.
Google first made a doodle in honour of Bangladesh’s Independence Day in 2013, commemorating the 43rd Independence Day.
Google Doodle is a special, temporary alteration of the logo on Google’s homepage that is intended to celebrate holidays, events, achievements and people and have been so since 1998.
With due solemnity and festivity, Bangladesh is celebrating its 48th Independence and National Day.
On March 26, 1971, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared Bangladesh’s independence following the crackdown on unarmed Bangalis on March 25 midnight by the then Pakistan occupation army.
The day is a public holiday.
