DUBAI: Google is waving the Omani flag through an animated doodle on Wednesday, in celebration of the Gulf country’s National Day.
Only visible for Google users in Oman, the doodle features the tri-color national flag which was only formally adopted in 1995.
The doodle commemorates the day of Oman’s independence from Portugese rule in 1650. It is followed by a celebration of the late Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al-Said’s birthday.
