The present Doodle observes Austria’s National Day, referred to in German as Nationalfeiertag. On this day in 1955, Austria passed a law that announced the country’s perpetual nonpartisanship, and the date has been held for the recognition of the nation’s National Day since 1965.
Represented in the Doodle fine art is Austria’s red-and-white, on a level plane striped banner. While the banner was first authoritatively embraced in quite a while, plan follows its sources back hundreds of years to Europe’s Middle Ages, with the main emphasess showing up as ahead of schedule as 1191.
Einen schönen Nationalfeiertag! Upbeat National Day, Austria!
