For 20 years, Google has crafted special iterations of its logo called Doodles to celebrate selected momentous occasions all over the world. From time to time, the company would release Google Doodles for Malaysia as well and Merdeka Day 2020 is the latest in the list.
This time around, Google has chosen orangutan as the theme for its Doodle. Naturally, users would be ushered to the search results page for Hari Merdeka when they clicked on the Doodle at Google Malaysia’s home page.
This is not the first time that Google has chosen an animal theme for its Merdeka Day’s Doodle. Previously in 2016, the company has come out with a Merdeka Day’s Doodle that featured Malayan tigers.
Our national flower, Bunga Raya or hibiscus rosa-sinesis has also been the subject of Google Doodle for Merdeka Day multiple times over the years. There were plenty of Malaysian-themed Doodles that Google has released for more than 10 years, so do head on to its archive over here if you want to check them out.
