Happy Jamhuri Day, Kenya!
The present Doodle celebrates Kenya’s Independence Day, otherwise called Jamhuri Day (jamhuri signifies “republic” in Swahili), one of the East African country’s most significant occasions.
December 12 recognizes different vital anniversaries in the country’s history: the date in 1963 that Kenya picked up freedom and joined the Commonwealth, just as the date in 1964 when the country authoritatively turned into a republic.
Portrayed in the Doodle artwork is the red-green-and-black striped Kenyan flag, which was received the day the country picked up its freedom.
The black in the flag represents Kenya’s Indigenous populace, the red signifies the nation’s battle for freedom, the green speaks to the country’s abundant characteristic scene, and the white represents harmony.
Emblazoned at the center of the flag is a bunch of spears behind a shield portrayed in the similarity of those conveyed by the country’s Indigenous Maasai individuals—a nod to the nation’s rich cultural legacy.
