The present Doodle observes Honduras’ National Day. On this date in 1821, the nation alongside present-day Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua–pronounced self-governance from Spain with the appropriation of the Act of Independence of Central America.
The five nations proceeded to shape the Federal Republic of Central America, and following Honduras’ withdrawal from the alliance the country increased total sway in 1838.
Portrayed in the present Doodle is the banner of Honduras. The banner’s two blue stripes speak to the acclaimed waterways that outskirt the country on either side: the Pacific Ocean toward the west and the Caribbean Sea toward the east. Also, the five blue stars in the middle speak to the five countries of the Federal Republic of Central America.
¡Feliz Día de Independencia, Honduras!
