Joining all Filipinos in commemorating the 112th Independence Day of the Republic of the Philippines, Google released this special doodle with design alluding to the Philippine Flag:
Google Doodle for 112th Philippine Independence Day - Live now at Google.com.ph
Featuring an abstract, seemingly hand-painted design, today's Google Doodle hints key elements of our national flag including the golden yellow sun with eight primary rays, three five-pointed golden yellow star and the colors Red, White and Blue.
Official sources state that our flag's white triangle element stands for equality and fraternity; the blue field for peace, truth, and justice; and the red field for patriotism and valor. The eight primary rays of the sun represent the eight provinces which declared a state of war as soon as the first revolt was initiated in the 1896 Revolution of independence from Spain, and placed under martial law by the colonial government: Manila, Cavite, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Laguna, and Batangas. The three stars represent the three major geographical divisions of the country: Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao. [via Wiki]
Last year, Google also commemorated Philippine Independence Day with a doodle donning a more straight forward design. View it here.
