The ‘Google-Doodle’ for the 58th Independence Day Celebrations on 15th August 2005 was similar to its first ‘doodle’ of the year 2003. The ‘Ashok Chakra’ of Indian National Flag was in the ‘Google’’s second ‘o’ and the only difference was that the Indian National Flag on its ‘l’ was not there.

The ‘Google-Doodle’ for the 59th Independence Day of India on 15th August 2006 was with the ‘Ashok Chakra’ of India’s   ‘tri-coloured’-National Flag of India was replacing the second ‘o’ of ‘Google’’s logo.

2009:
There was no ‘Google Doodle’ for the year 2009- the 62nd  Independence Day Celebrations of India on 15th August 2009.

2010:

The ‘Google-Doodle’ for the year  2010- the 63rd Independence Day Celebrations of India on 15th August 2010 was in a mode different from the earlier ones.

The second ‘o’ of the ‘Google’’s logo was in a ‘Rangoli’ in the form of a tri-coloured-‘Lotus’, the ‘National Flower’ of India, with the second ‘o’ of ‘Google”s logo with the ‘Ashok Chakra’ of the Indian National Flag, and the upper petals of the lotus in saffron colour and the lower petals of the lotus in green colour and with the middle petals in a light pink, representing the white of the Indian National Flag, and the entire ‘Google’’s logo was over a golden- brown padded- back-ground.

The ‘Google-Doodle’ for the year 2011-the 64th Independence Day Celebrations on 15th August 2011 was with ‘India’s Red Fort’ beneath the ‘Google’’s logo.

2012:

Google-Doodle for India's I - Day 2012

The ‘Google-Doodle’ for the year 2012-the 65th Independence Day Celebrations on 15th August 2012 was with India’s National Bird, ‘Peacock over the ‘Google’’s logo, with the pea-cock’s head and its curved neck forming a part of ‘G’ of the ‘Google’’s logo.

2013:

Google-Doodle for India's I - Day 2013

The ‘Google-Doodle’ for this year 2013 for the 66th Independence Day Celebrations, today, on 15th August 2013, is entirely different from all the earlier doodles of Google and it is a tri-coloured ribbon, reminding the Indian National Flag’s three colours, forming the ‘Google’’s  logo in a running writing with ‘G’ in capital letter and other letters in small, and ‘G’ and the firs ‘o’ are in golden yellow colour, and the second ‘o’ and the lower portion of ‘g’ are in a light blue colour and with the upper portion of ‘g’ and the letters ‘l’ and ‘e’ are in green colour.

It is notable that ‘Google’ has not used the tri-coloured Indian National Flag in its 2013 Indian Independence Day’s  Doodle.

The tri-coloured ribbon indirectly reminds the tri-coloured Indian National Flag, connected with India’s Independence.

‘Google’, knowingly or unknowingly, has used golden yellow in the place of saffron of the Indian National Flag, perhaps, meaning that India is in its “Golden Era” after 66 years of Independence.

Our “Thanks” to “Google”on behalf of Indians, for its participation in India’s Independence Day Celebrations by its “Doodles” on its ‘Home-Page.
