The present Doodle observes Bolivia’s National Day, referred to locally as Día de la Patria. On this day in 1825, Bolivia–referred to then as Upper Peru–marked its Declaration of Independence and officially turned into a sovereign country.
In festivity of Bolivia’s rich history, many eat classic neighborhood dishes like chorizo or singed bread, while others respect Bolivian culture by dressing in the bowler caps and handwoven garments of the nation’s indigenous populace, the Aymara.
Depicted in the Doodle artwork is the tri-shading Bolivian flag, which highlights three flat groups of red, yellow, and green and the Bolivian coat of arms at its middle.
Roosted on the cartouche in the escutcheon is the significant national flying creature, the Andean condor. With a monstrous wingspan that can arrive at in excess of ten feet, the flying creature is among the biggest flying animals on the planet.
Underneath it sits an adapted form of Mount Potosi with another of Bolivia’s famous national creatures, the llama, at its base.
