Google is showing a doodle on its home page in Sri Lanka, honoring Sri Lanka Independence Day:

Sri Lanka Independence Day Google Doodle

On February 4th each year, the island country commemorates its independence from Britain, which became official on this day in 1948. Citizens celebrate the holiday with flags, parades, etc.

This isn’t the only doodle Google is running today. On its Canadian home page, the company is honoring the last day of the Canadian penny, as it is withdrawn from circulation.

Last week, Google honored Jackie Robinson with a doodle here in the United States.
