Google | Google Doodle for Philippines Independence Day 2017

Google Philippines joins Filipinos in celebrating the 119th Independence Day of the Philippines with a special one-day only doodle on its homepage.

“In honor of the Philippine Independence Day, today’s Doodle is a colorful celebration of both the Philippine flag and the country’s unique island landscapes,” it says on the Google Doodle website.

With more than 7,000 islands that make up the country, there is no shortage of opportunities to watch the sun rise over the water.  It shows Filipinos gathered around the flag, while sunrise can be seen over the water, a symbol of the Filipinos' optimism in the face of adversity.

"Doodle" is the name used for decorative changes made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries and the lives of famous personalities.

The doodle is made by Dan Matutina, a Manila-based Filipino designer and illustrator whose work has appeared in various international titles like The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Wallpaper*, Wired, as well as global brands like Uniqlo, Pinterest, Samsung, Coca-Cola.

Sharing his doodle on his social media accounts, the illustrator said, “I had the honor to make this year’s Philippine Independence Day Doodle for Google.

”Last year, Google celebrated our Independence Day with a Doodle of “eleated citizens celebrating on a jeepney: an Iconic Filipino traveling vehicle.”

Google first celebrated the Philippine Independence Day in 2009, with Philippine flag colors adorning Google’s logo.
