Flag Day

I’ve got a friend whose birthday is June 14th. Every June 14th I wish him a happy Flag Day.

Anyway, a reader pointed out that while Google had no special “Doodle” logo for Flag Day today, Bing had this:

Flag Day on Bing

Flag Day on Bing

I’ve noted the difference between Google and Bing on various patriotic-sort holidays and anniversaries before, so I’m not surprised about this in the least. On D-Day this year Google celebrated drive-in theaters. In 2009 on D-Day, they memorialized Tetris.



  1. 11 Bravo,

    It’s not that Murdoc doesn’t like the army, he just honors the best branch of the military.

    1. Every year he does a USMC birthday post, but he generally misses the Army birthday, June 14th. However, I am probably being too harsh because I didn’t notice a Battle of Midway post this summer which he normally does.

      1. Yah. I’ve been slipping. As I’ve said before, I’m not dissing the Army, I’ve just got a couple of co-workers who are all hooting and hollering about the USMC birthday every year. I meant to make a point about the Army birthday this year. And then forgot.
