Celebrating the 68th Independence Day of India, Google has posted a doodle on its homepage. The doodle features the independent India’s first stamp as the subject of 15th August’s Google doodle.
The first stamp of independent India was issued on 21 November 1947. It depicts the Indian flag with the patriots’ slogan, Jai Hind (long live India), on the top right hand corner. It was valued at three and one-half annas.
The logo of Google starts with a ‘G’ but with the saffron colour, which is the colour of the top stripe in the Indian flag. There is a postage stamp with India’s flag on it and a government stamp for the blue Ashok chakra. The last three letters are in the green shade of the Indian flag.
