Google: On its homepage, Google has swapped out its colourful logo for grey, monochromatic typography. Its emblem, which often uses the vibrant colours red, yellow, blue, and green, now has a sombre appearance. Why is this happening, exactly?
So, the search engine has chosen to honour Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, who passed away on September 8 at the age of 96. At Balmoral, the monarch’s Scottish estate, Queen Elizabeth passed away.
While it progressively went grey throughout the rest of the world on the day of the Queen’s passing, it first became visible in India on Sunday. India, meanwhile, is currently marking a day of national mourning for the Queen.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent his sympathies to people in the UK and all over the world
All around the nation, the national flag is flown at half-staff. On all platforms, the grayscale logo is readable. However, it cannot be clicked. On its homepage, Google regularly posts doodles—modified versions of its logo—dedicated to well-known individuals. When it does, visitors can click on the image to be sent to a page containing the person’s biography and accomplishments. Google doodles also honour significant dates, death dates, and milestone anniversaries. Following the Queen’s demise, Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent his sympathies to people in the UK and all over the world. We offer our sincere sympathies to the nation of the United Kingdom and people everywhere who are mourning the demise of Queen Elizabeth II.
