  • To commemorate the Philip­pines’ 116th year of indepen­dence, we’re continuing our tra­dition of celebrating this national holiday with a special doodle on the Google.com.ph homepage. This year’s Independence Day doodle captures the bayanihan— or communal—spirit that Filipi­nos are known for. A favorite subject of many Filipino artists, bayanihan is often depicted through the tradition of members of the barrio (or town) helping a neighbor move house by hoisting and carrying it on a bamboo frame.

    Today’s doodle captures the energy and spirit that is associated with this way of life.

    This is the fifth Independence Day doodle to be featured on the Google.com.ph homepage, and was created with the help of Googlers from the Philippines and around the world.

    A “doodle” is the name used for the decorative changes made to the Google logo to celebrate holi­days, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, scientists, and leaders. Doodles make search even more fun and we learn new things with each new design. This year, clicking on the doodle will lead visitors to more information about the history of Philippine In­dependence Day.

    Doodles have long been a part of Google’s history. The first one  was created when founders Lar­ry Page and Sergey Brin asked Google’s chief doodler (then in­tern) Dennis Hwang to design a logo for the 4th of July in 2000. Today’s doodle is one of more than 2,000 illustrations made for Google homepages around the world. (Interaksyon)
