In honour of Morocco’s independence, Google created a straightforward yet patriotic doodle that featured a waving Moroccan flag against a blue, overcast sky that was bordered by red and green to match the flag’s colors.

Morocco celebrates its annual national holiday on November 18 to honor King Mohammed V for his struggle against the French and Spanish occupiers and to mark the anniversary of the country’s declaration of independence.

Morocco formally became independent from the French government on March 2, 1956. Morocco formally proclaimed its independence from Spain in April of the same year.

In order to honor Sultan Mohammed V, Morocco chose to celebrate on November 18 rather than the dates on which it formally declared its independence.

The decision to celebrate the event on November 18 in honor of Sultan Mohammed V’s triumphant return from exile was made by the late King Hassan II.

Prior to independence, on November 18, 1955, the late King Mohammed V made his way home from a forced exile.

With his countrymen at his side, the monarch continued to actively oppose French colonisation after his return.

“We are delighted to announce the end of the trusteeship system and protectorate and the advent of freedom and independence,” said King Mohammed V in a speech on November 18, 1955 following his return from exile.

Morocco was able to gain its independence through discussions with both France and Spain thanks to its resiliency and opposition.

A Google Doodle is a special, temporary alteration of the logo on Google’s homepages intended to commemorate holidays, events, achievements, and notable historical figures.

The first Google Doodle honored the 1998 edition of the long-running annual Burning Man event in Black Rock City, Nevada, and was designed by co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin to notify users of their absence in case the servers crashed.
