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 pioneer rule. The groundbreaking event connoted the power and solidarity of Nigeria’s 36 states and was set apart with firecrackers, moving, and a state dinner. Throughout the long term, Independence Day has been an open door for Nigerians to feature their rich and differed culture, from suya (hot 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 bird which speaks to quality. The essential shades of the Doodle are equivalent to Nigeria’s public hues: green connoting the nation’s agrarian riches and white a marker for solidarity and harmony.
Cheerful Independence Day, Nigeria!
