article imageGoogle Homepage Adds Yellow Ribbon For Memorial Day

By Chris V. Thangham     May 25, 2009 in Internet
Google wants to commemorate the Memorial Day holiday by adding the yellow ribbon to its search homepage. In 2006 Google didn’t add the yellow ribbon on Memorial Day, and some people were upset at the decision.
Today is Memorial Day in the U.S., observed on the last Monday of May. Google is commemorating the holiday and honoring the dead men and woman soldiers by adding a yellow ribbon to its home page.
Google usually adds special logos for holidays and events such as for Halloween, Earth Day and Christmas.
In 2006 Google didn’t add the yellow ribbon on Memorial Day, and some people were upset and others were happy that Google didn’t add it. The latter group said:
Stop honoring troops who occupy foreign lands by force of arms, who create global instability, and hide behind vicious concepts like patriotism and the need ’to spread ’democracy’.
Google also posts ribbons of other colors. During World AIDS day, Google added a red ribbon. After the terrorists bombings in Madrid (in 2004) and in London (in 2005), Google added a black ribbon.
