The present Doodle observes Uruguay Independence day to pay tribute to the date in 1825 when the country formally announced its self-governance from Brazil.
Delineated in the Doodle work of art is the banner of this South American country, which highlights even stripes of light blue and white and the brilliant Sun of May on its canton. On May 25, 1810, the sun is said to have blasted through the mists during a basic defining moment for the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata–the domain that included present-day Uruguay–in its battle to break liberated from Spain.
The Sun of May is deified on Uruguay’s banner to speak to the country’s sway, which formally showed up over 15 years after the fact on this day in 1825, when the nation pronounced its autonomy from the resulting administering intensity of Brazil.
¡Feliz Día de la Independencia, Uruguay!
