Google Doodle Celebrates Nigeria’s Independence Day

Happy Independence Day, Nigeria!

On this day in 1960, Africa’s most populous country (with more than 200 million occupants) turned into a sovereign republic, a anniversary commemorated as Nigeria’s Independence Day. The present Doodle praises this amazing event with a depiction of Nigeria’s national animal and symbol of strength—the eagle.

In the Nigerian emblem, a red eagle spreads its wings over a wreath of green and white—the national colors likewise featured in the Doodle fine art that address artwork and harmony, separately.

Below these symbols, the Nigerian saying fills in as the establishment for the crest: “Unity and Faith, Peace and Progress.” Today’s recognition of Independence Day embodies this official slogan as numerous residents at home and abroad bind together across diverse backgrounds to reflect more than 60 years of Nigerian history.

Regardless of whether paying attention to local Nigerian music, for example, fújì or getting ready traditional meals like egusi (a sort of melon seed) soup, celebrants honor their legacy while anticipating what’s to come.
