The present Doodle honors Slovenia’s National Day, otherwise called Dan državnosti or Statehood Day. On this day in 1991, Slovenia became an independent state.
Spreading from the Alps to the Adriatic Sea, the central European country celebrates 30 years of independence, showing the Slovenian flag on official state structures, private residences, and some other spot suitable for the festival of national pride.
Take a gander at the Slovenian flag and you’ll see the three peaks of Mount Triglav—likewise portrayed in the present Doodle artwork—the middle of which is the nation’s highest point at 9,396 feet (2,864 meters)! Subsequent to picking this flag as the national symbol 30 years prior, it was taken to the highest point of Mount Triglav as celebration of Slovenia’s independence.
Public Day is additionally an ideal event to enjoy Slovenian luxuries like žlikrofi (little potato dumplings), Štruklji (boiled, steamed, or singed rolls loaded up with cheese), and Potica (a ring-shaped nut cake).
Vesel Dan državnosti! Happy Statehood Day, Slovenia!
