Search engine giant Google is marking Bangladesh’s 49th Independence and National Day by replacing its regular home page graphic with a special doodle.
The new doodle features three goods-laden boats in a river, commemorating the country's declaration of independence from Pakistan in 1971.
Google marks many special occasions with customized doodles, changing its logo on the homepage to reflect the occasion.
On March 26, 1971, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared Bangladesh’s independence following the crackdown on unarmed Bangalees on the midnight of March 25 by Pakistani occupation forces.
After the nine-month Liberation War with the supreme sacrifices of three million martyrs and the honor of two lakh women, Bangladesh achieved its cherished independence on December 16, 1971.
