To pay tribute to near two centuries of El Salvadoran autonomy from Spain, the present Doodle commends the country’s Independence Day. On this day in 1821, El Salvador–alongside Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua–proclaimed its autonomy with the appropriation of the Act of Independence of Central America. The five nations joined to frame the Federal Republic of Central America in 1823, and following its disintegration El Salvador turned into a completely sovereign country in 1841.
Represented in the present Doodle is El Salvador’s blue-and-white-striped banner with the nation’s profoundly representative escutcheon in the middle. The country’s date of freedom, September fifteenth, 1821, encompasses a red Phrygian top, a portrayal of El Salvador’s well deserved freedom. The following are five volcanoes, every one of which represents one of the five conditions of the Federal Republic of Central America.
¡Feliz Día de la Independencia, El Salvador!
