Google has marked India’s 66th Republic Day celebrations with a new banner on the Indian version of its website.
The image shows a tableau with flowers passing down the ceremonial road of Rajpath in the heart of Deli.
Google's image depicts the iconic India Gate and the Rashtrapati Bhawan, the country’s enormous presidential residence.
Men and women in traditional Indian clothes can be seen waving from the tabelau.
Republic Day celebrates the constitution of India and the country’s independence from Britain; 26 January marks the proclamation of India’s independence by its National Congress in 1930.
The day is celebrated by parades and dances.
The search giant sometimes releases special limited edition “Doodles” that replace its banner on certain days of the year.
The Republic Day doodle only appears in India.
