The present Doodle observes Nigeria’s Independence Day, which is watching its 60th commemoration this year! On this day in 1960, Africa’s most crowded country pronounced its autonomy from British pilgrim rule. The pivotal event implied the sway and solidarity of Nigeria’s 36 states and was set apart with firecrackers, moving, and a state meal. Throughout the long term, Independence Day has been an open door for Nigerians to feature their rich and shifted culture, from suya (fiery meat stick) and jollof rice (one-pot tomato rice) to juju music and afrobeats.
The craftsmanship in the present Doodle is a gesture to Nigeria’s escutcheon—explicitly the falcon which speaks to quality. The essential shades of the Doodle are equivalent to Nigeria’s public hues: green meaning the nation’s rural riches and white a marker for solidarity and harmony.
Happy Independence Day, Nigeria!
