Independence Day: Google Celebrates Morocco

Independence Day: Google Celebrates Morocco

Google is wearing the colors of Morocco and celebrating with the Moroccan people, today November 18, the 65th anniversary of the independence of Morocco.

On its home page, the American giant pays tribute to the Kingdom with a "doodle" of the Moroccan flag floating above a green rectangle bearing the name of the search engine.

A design that looks like last year's but this time shows the flag on a green background, not a blue one. "Red represents Moroccan values ​​such as courage and strength, while green symbolizes ideals like peace and love," Google describes.

This indelible and landmark date in the construction of modern Morocco commemorates the illustrious speech of the Father of the Nation, the late His Majesty Mohammed V, announcing the end of the protectorate and the liberation of the country.

"We are delighted to announce the end of the protectorate regime and the advent of freedom and independence", declared the late Sovereign on November 18, 1955 after his return from exile, in the company of the royal family.
