The present Doodle observes Bolivia’s National Day, referred to locally as Día de la Patria. On this day in 1825, Bolivia–referred to then as Upper Peru–marked its Declaration of Independence and formally turned into a sovereign country.
In festivity of Bolivia’s rich history, many eat exemplary neighborhood dishes like chorizo or singed bread, while others respect Bolivian culture by dressing in the bowler caps and handwoven apparel of the nation’s indigenous populace, the Aymara.
Delineated in the Doodle craftsmanship is the tri-shading Bolivian banner, which highlights three even groups of red, yellow, and green and the Bolivian emblem at its middle. Roosted on the cartouche in the crest is the symbolic national flying creature, the Andean condor. With a huge wingspan that can arrive at in excess of ten feet, the feathered creature is among the biggest flying animals on the planet. Beneath it sits an adapted form of Mount Potosi with another of Bolivia’s notorious national creatures, the llama, at its base.
¡Feliz Día de la Patria, Bolivia!
