Selamat Hari Merdeka!! (Happy Independence Day!)
The present Doodle observes Malaysia’s Independence Day, referred to in Malay as Hari Merdeka, out of appreciation for a long time of Malaysian autonomy. On this day in 1957, the country at that point known as the Federation of Malaya formally picked up its power from British rule.
This occasion, additionally called Hari Kebangsaan or National Day, isn’t to be mistaken for Malaysia Day, which recognizes the date in 1963 when the name Malaysia was formally received.
Over the Malay Peninsula, the country’s kin celebrates in their freedom and independence.
Included in the Doodle artwork is the orangutan, Asia’s just extraordinary chimp, which in Malaysia is found in the rainforest of Borneo. These tree-staying primates share practically 97% of their qualities with Homo sapiens, so they’re viewed as one of the people’s nearest family members.
This unique relationship is reflected in the name “orangutan,” which gets from Malay and means “person of the forest.”
