Trinidad and Tobago Independence Day 2020 – Today’s Doodle celebrates the Independence Day of the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago. When the clock struck midnight on this day in 1962, the islands of Trinidad and Tobago officially achieved independence from British colonial rule. To mark the historic moment, the country for the very first time raised its newly adopted red, white, and black national flag, which is depicted in the Doodle artwork.
Each color of the flag’s diagonally striped design holds specific significance. The red that dominates the flag’s background symbolizes the sun and the energetic strength of the nation’s people. The black on the diagonal stripe represents the earth and a devotion to strength and solidarity. Lastly, the white stands for equality and alludes to the ocean that connects the nation’s two primary islands.
Happy Independence Day, Trinidad and Tobago!
