Google Doodle celebrates St David's Day
Today's Google Doodle marks the feast day of the patron saint of Wales
Today's Google Doodle marks the feast day of the patron saint of Wales.
The day is cleverly celebrated by the search-engine giant using a red dragon, a leek and daffodils to spell out the company's name.
The dragon's tale forms the shape of an 'e', and the doodle flames transform into daffodils to form the letter ‘g’.
The patron saint of Wales is believed to have died on this day in AD 589, and the date has been a day of celebration in Wales since the 18th century.
Prince Charles will today visit Wales with the Duchess of Cornwall to mark the day.
Though a national holiday there is much debate within Wales over whether or not it should also be a bank holiday.
The idea of a bank holiday to mark St David's Day was suggested as part of the UK government tourism strategy which recommended moving the May bank holiday to March 1st.
However, the idea has since been dropped.
