Freedom Day 2018 – Today’s Doodle commemorates Freedom Day in South Aftrica. The Doodle displays the South African flag waving in honor of the first elections which granted citizens of all races equal rights to vote. The historic elections, held on April 27, 1994, were a significant milestone in the ending of Apartheid.
On that remarkable day, South Africans of all backgrounds joined at voting centers to exercise their newly minted voting rights and elected Nelson Mandela as their next President.
While this national holiday is a celebration of the progress that has been made so far, it also serves as a reminder for South Africans to continue making steps towards unity and equality.
Today, we celebrate Freedom Day and the hard-earned progress that is continuously made throughout the country.
