Qatar National Day 2020 Google Doodle
Google celebrates Qatar National Day 2020 with an amazing Doodle on their homepage. 

Qatar National Day is a national commemoration of Qatar's unification in 1878. It is celebrated annually on 18 December.

Illustrated in the Doodle artwork is Qatar’s maroon and white national flag, which was formally adopted in 1971, the year the country declared its independence. The maroon color–today called “Qatar maroon”–is believed to date back centuries to the Bronze Age, when early settlers utilized local shellfish to create purple-red dye. The distinctive colorant became a popular export and was used in royal garments. This color has come to hold great importance to Qatar’s national identity and today serves as a symbol of the country’s cultural heritage and history.
Happy National Day, Qatar!
