Google have celebrated St David’s day with a fresh Google Doodle on their homepage.
The doodle has a Welsh Dragon (Y Ddraig Goch) smelling a daffodil flower. Google is written in stone in the background, with the dragon’s tail curled around the “l”.
The oldest official recorded use of the red dragon to symbolise Wales was in the Historia Brittonum, written sometime around 829 AD.
St David is the patron saint of Wales. St David’s day is a celebration of both St David and Welsh culture, in Wales, as well as internationally.
The Welsh flag adorned with the red dragon is often prominently displayed.
Additionally the daffodils (or leeks) are pinned to clothes as they are a symbol of Wales.
As well as St David’s day, the 1st of March also marks the day Google push ahead with their changes to their privacy policies.
I personally think it is a big storm in a tea-cup, surely merging all the long complicated individual privacy policies into one simple one is a good thing.
