Happy St. Andrew’s Day!
The present Doodle, represented by guest artist Peter Lubach, recognizes St. Andrew’s Day, Scotland’s yearly festival of its patron saint and national culture.
The traditions of St. Andrew’s Day are accepted to follow right back to the eleventh century, and in 2007 the festival was authoritatively settled as a public occasion.
To pay tribute to St. Andrew’s Day, the present Doodle fine art includes a few significant components of Scottish iconography. The wild lion on the extreme left has since quite a while ago spoke to Scotland since its first appearance on legitimate formal attire in the thirteenth century.
Scotland’s national emblem, the thistle, replaces the second “O,” and to its privilege sits the fundamentally imperiled Scottish wildcat—the main leftover local feline species that carries on with in the wild in the UK.
Next to the wildcat stands a stronghold illustrative of the notable structures that speck the Scottish scene. Lastly on the extreme right is a brilliant falcon, which represents Scotland’s wild natural scene.
