Google’s iconic logo has had a St David’s Day themed makeover in the UK today as the search giant marks Wales’ national day with a red dragon themed ‘Google Doodle’.

The search engine’s results page is also decorated with daffodils, including replacing the second letter o in Google’s name.

On it’s Google Doodle archive page, the web giant said: “In honor of St. David’s Day, known in Welsh as Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant, today’s Doodle is inspired by symbols of Welsh heritage and its ancient cultural legacy.

“In the legend of Dinas Emrys, a Celtic king starts a battle between fearsome dragons—one white and one red. The red dragon was victorious and now stands as the symbol centered on the national flag. Other symbols of this day are the leek and the daffodil which some Cymry (Welsh people) wear to celebrate the day.

“Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant Hapus! Happy St. David’s Day!”

A ‘Google Doodle’ is a temporary change to the logo on Google’s homepages intended to commemorate holidays, events, achievements and notable historical figures.
