Search giant Google dedicated a special doodle to mark India’s 70th Republic Day. The doodle with a 3D impression depicts the iconic facade of the grand Rashtrapati Bhavan in the backdrop, flanked by trees, reflecting the flora and fauna that resides on its sprawling campus.
January 26 or Purna Swaraj Day was the day the Constitution of India came into force in 1950, though it was adopted in 1949.
The Google Doodle is created by a guest artist, Reshidev RK.
Rich in colours, the celebrated landmark is fronted by six letters of the word G-O-O-G-L-E, each one on in a stylised form, ranging from a golf course to an ancient monument.
While G dipped in green colour, stands on a golf link, L has been represented by Delhi’s Qutub Minar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the most visited sites in the country.
The fourth letter G takes a shape that portrays an elephant trunk placed over a peacock, both being symbols of India.
The rest two Os and E, represent the handicraft and intangible heritage of India, the overall result being thematically colourful.
The internet behemoth is known to mark landmark occasions and life and times of celebrated personalities with a special doodle on its homepage.
