The present Doodle observes Uganda’s Independence Day in recognition of the date in 1962 when the East African nation shed its status as a British protectorate to turn into a completely self-ruling country.
Portrayed in the Doodle fine art is Uganda’s banner, which highlights six exchanging stripes of dark, yellow, and red—colors that speak to the Ugandan public, tropical daylight, and solidarity. The unmistakable fledgling at the focal point of the banner is the Gray Crowned Crane, a delicate animal chose for its common magnificence and class to speak to Uganda as its public seal. The feathered creature’s raised leg makes a purposeful posture intended to represent the nation’s development into what’s to come.
Happy Independence Day, Uganda!
