Happy Independence Day, Moldova!
The present Doodle celebrates the Independence Day of the Republic of Moldova which celebrates the country’s adoption of its Declaration of Independence on this day in 1991.
Although the modern Moldovan state was set up just 30 years prior, it was first perceived as a independent principality as early as 1349!
Numerous celebrants across the landlocked Eastern European nation appreciate downtime of school and work to notice this achievement and hundreds of years of Moldovan heritage. Official Independence Day functions begin with the laying of flowers at historical monuments in the capital of Chisinau to respect the past.
At the Grand National Assembly Square, in the focal point of the capital, Independence Day parades are brightened by residents wearing the national Moldovan clothing which includes colorfully embroidered, handmade clothing adorned with intricate designs.
Moldovan folk liven the roads as gatherings accumulate to play out a style of dancing known as the Hora while fireworks illuminate the skies.
