Google Doodle celebrates Bangladesh’s Independence Day
The world's most-used web search engine Google has created a doodle marking the 47th 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 Sunday, March 26. Users will get information on Bangladesh's Independence Day when they click on the doodle. 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 47th Independence and National Day on Sunday. 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.
