On August 15th Google’s homepage will display independent India’s first stamp. Months after India attained independence; the first stamp was issued by free India, on November 21, 1947. It depicted the Indian national flag with the popular slogan – “Jai Hind (Long Live India)” written in Hindi. The stamp was valued at three and one-half anna that time.
Today, Google has been commemorating India’s Independence Day on its India home page since 2003. The 2003 doodle was quite similar to the one that Google posted a couple of years later in 2005 and only had the Tricolour fluttering on the letter ‘L’ of the Google logo that seemed to double up as a flag post.
