MNA Science & Tech Desk: World’s most popular web search engine Google has been celebrating Bangladesh’s 47th Independence and National Day by creating a special doodle on its homepage.

The doodle, featuring a girl carrying the national flag of Bangladesh and the combination of red and green colours, which are the colours of the national flag, has been seen above the search box on the homepage of Google since early Sunday.

Google for the first time in its history made a special doodle in celebration of Bangladesh’s Independence Day in 2013.

However, it is a special, temporary alteration of the logo on Google’s homepage that is intended to celebrate holidays, events, achievements and people. The first Google Doodle was in honor of the Burning Man Festival of 1998, and was designed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin to notify users of their absence in case the servers crashed.

Subsequent Google Doodles were designed by an outside contractor, until Page and Brin asked intern Dennis Hwang to design a logo for Bastille Day in 2000. From that point onward, Doodles have been organized and published by a team of employees termed “Doodlers”.
