Google Doodle Celebrates Bangladesh Independence Day

Update : 26 Mar 2024, 12:00

On March 26, 2024, Google honoured Bangladesh's Independence Day with a special Doodle on its homepage, celebrating the nation's hard-won freedom from Pakistan. The Doodle artwork features the national flag of Bangladesh, depicting a red circle on a green background.

“Today’s Doodle celebrates Independence Day in Bangladesh. The public holiday marks the moment Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared independence on this day in 1971," Google Doodle describes.

Bangladesh's journey to independence was a long and arduous one, marked by immense sacrifice and struggle. The roots of the movement can be traced back to 1947 when the British Indian Empire was partitioned into two independent nations – India and Pakistan. East Pakistan, which later became Bangladesh, was geographically separated from the western wing by over 1,000 miles of Indian territory. Source: Mint
