Google launched a doodle in its 14th birthday, last September 27, showing a cake with 14 candles, and below that, portions of a chocolate cake that form the word “Google.”
Below the doodle are fourteen candles that tally the number of years that Google has been around to help us navigate the world wide web easier.
Clicking the doodle takes a visitor to the search engine results page for the word “Google.”
Sergey Brin and Larry Page, students from Stanford University, founded Google in the year 1998.
According to IBN Live, September 27 is not the real date of foundation for the company. The date was just chosen for expediency. It said:
“Google celebrated September 7 (the day when the company was incorporated) as its birthday till 2005. In 2005 Google changed the date to September 27 to make it coincide with the announcement of the record number of pages that the search engine was indexing.”
Last year’s celebration featured a doodle of what looks like a clay photograph of the “Google!” word wearing party hats in front of a cake with thirteen candles, while on top of an orange table with balloons around.
