Today’s Doodle Presents Uruguay Independence Day 2020

The present Doodle observes Uruguay Independence day out of appreciation for the date in 1825 when the country formally proclaimed its self-governance from Brazil.

Delineated in the Doodle work of art is the banner of this South American country, which highlights even stripes of light blue and white and the brilliant Sun of May on its canton. On May 25, 1810, the sun is said to have blasted through the mists during a basic defining moment for the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata–the region that included present-day Uruguay–in its battle to break liberated from Spain.

The Sun of May is deified on Uruguay’s banner to speak to the country’s sway, which formally showed up over 15 years after the fact on this day in 1825, when the nation proclaimed its autonomy from the ensuing decision intensity of Brazil.

¡Feliz Día de la Independencia, Uruguay!
