I excitedly click on the doodle knowing how Google traditionally have it, you will be directed to the search page on what the doodle is all about. And yes it’s about us! the 101st International Women’s Day (IWD) 2012 being celebrated today all over the world, with this year’s theme “CONNECTING GIRLS, INSPIRING FUTURES”.
And being a woman, I sort of have a “feel” or understanding on why and how each character in this doodle goes together, resulting to a perfect significance to the subject of celebration. But still , I consulted the expert “Google” of course to check the interpretation of this year’s doodle for IWD and here’s some bits of input that I found:
- the colors of the doodle are in sync with Google's official logo colors – blue (in purplish tinge), red, yellow and green.
- the first 'G' is represented by the symbol of Venus
- the second 'o' is a yellow flower.
- the red dots in place of the first 'o' and the 'e' seem to represent the bindi, a symbol identified with Indian women.
International Women's Day was first celebrated on March 18, 1911 in four European countries - Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. The United Nations began officially supporting and sponsoring the event since 1975, the year that was designated as International Women's Year.
HAPPY DAY to all my women friends and to all the women in the world. Let’s make everyday a Women’s Day. Here’s a special song about women that always makes me smile whenever I hear it and I want to share it with all the women out there…
