Independence Day 2016 (Czech Republic): Google Doodle
Google Doodle is Celebrating Independence Day 2016 (Czech Republic) by posting a beautiful Google Logo on its homepage.

Today's Doodle marks the Independent Czechoslovak State Day with a symbol of Czech national resilience, the Linden tree. The Linden tree is known for its ability to live for hundreds of years, and serves as an enduring symbol of the Czech Republic.

Following World War I, there was wide support for the territories of the Austrian-Hungarian empire to form their own governments. Czechoslovakia arose from this spirit of independence. In 1918, the Czechoslovak National Council declared independence for a territory that included the countries we now know as the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Czech Republic still celebrates Independent Czechoslovak State Day today as the formation of their own, sovereign country.
