Google doodle celebrates the Estonia’s Independence Day

Today’s doodle celebrates Estonia’s Independence Day. On this day in 1918, the Estonian Relief Committee formally declared the country’s independence.

Every year, Estonians celebrate with a flag-raising ceremony at the Pik Hermann Tower in the capital Tallinn. Crowds gather to watch the blue, black and white flag depicted in today’s piece rise into the sky. Afterwards, a parade of the Wehrmacht marches through Tallinn’s Freedom Square.

The President will then host a reception and concert at the Estonian Theater and Concert Hall, where the audience will enjoy traditional dishes such as kirvoiräve (open-faced sprat fillet sandwich). Estonians pay tribute to those who helped achieve freedom and think about the future of the country.

Happy Independence Day, Estonia!
