On June 12, 1898, a public reading of the Philippine Declaration of Independence in Cavite el Viejo (modern-day Kawit) proclaimed the archipelago a sovereign nation. This revolutionary event was followed by the first public performance of “Lupang Hinirang” (“Chosen Land”), the Philippine National Anthem, along with the first hosting of the Philippine national flag. To celebrate the 124th Philippine Independence Day, Google planted an Easter egg in Search results and had also released an animated Doodle on its Search homepage.
When people clicked or tapped on the doodle on the Search homepage, a short display of virtual fireworks was activated. It showed a multitude of colors including the Philippine flag. The show increased in intensity towards the end and remained visible as users scrolled their screens. It was. made available across devices, even in dark mode.
