Google Doodle honours world war heroes on Veterans Day

Washington – In expressing gratitude and honouring the heroes that served in the World War I, Google is celebrating with a doodle showing the search engine’s logo adorned with an image of the Veterans Day parade.

The Veterans Day was introduced on Nov. 11, 1919, and was originally called Armistice Day, celebrating the heroes that served in World War I.

According to Mashable, after World War II, war veteran Raymond Weeks wanted to expand the holiday to celebrate all veterans, not only those who served in WWI.

In 1954, the word ‘Armistice’ was officially replaced with ‘Veterans’.

The report added that Google’s special doodle for Veterans Day back in 2011 depicted the ‘l’ in Google’s logo replaced with a tree with a yellow ribbon tied to it.
