Happy Independence Day!

The present Doodle commends the Independence Day of the nation frequently called the gateway to South America: Colombia. On this day in 1810, inhabitants of Bogotá called for freedom from Spanish principle.

This crucial occasion brought about a brief autonomy that helped make ready for Colombia’s possible permanent sovereignty.

Included in the present Doodle artwork is Colombia’s national blossom, the Cattleya trianae.

Additionally referred to in Spanish as the Flor de Mayo (May Flower), the Cattleya trianae orchid ordinarily develops all through the cloud woods of the Colombian Andes.

Colombia is home to as much as 4,000 extraordinary types of orchid, more than some other nation on the planet, and the Cattleya trianae is among 1,500 assortments that can’t be found anyplace else on the planet.

Named after Colombian botanist José Jerónimo Triana, the Cattleya trianae was picked as the nation’s national bloom in 1936 because of its red, blue, and yellow shading, equivalent to the stripes of Colombia’s flag.
