Lebanon Independence Day 2020 – Today’s Doodle celebrates Lebanon’s Independence Day on the anniversary of the date in 1943 when the nation proclaimed its autonomy after over two decades of French rule. Depicted in today’s Doodle artwork is the Lebanese flag, which the country officially adopted just weeks after asserting its sovereignty.
The flag’s red stripes symbolize the nation’s fight for freedom, while the white stripe in the center stands for peace and the snow found in the nation’s mountainous regions. At the center sits a green cedar tree, a symbol of sturdiness and longevity that has populated the Lebanese landscape for over a millennium.
Happy Independence Day, Lebanon!
