They probably did, but nobody bothered grabbing it.

It's amazing how many "yay for America" celebrations there are over there.

Taiwan doesn't really have any "go Taiwan!" holidays. We do have a "Die Chinese Scum!" holiday though.

Memorial day isn't so much Yay for America, but I get your point.

Die Chinese Scum day, sounds festive.

OK Google didn't do a Memorial Day Banner, they have been asked in years past and this is the typical response they give:

"If we were to commemorate this holiday, we'd want to express reverence; however, as Google's special logos tend to be lighthearted in nature, this would be a particularly challenging design. We wouldn't want to create a graphic that could be interpreted as disrespectful in any way."

That doesn't make sense see as they have made banners for ANZAC day, British Remebrence day and Canada’s Remembrance Day apparently.

Australian's, English and Canadian's can't be bothered complaining though. With American's you're likely to get sued if you offend someone.


no offense intended, don't sue me

Haha, that may be true, but that's not the excuse. They said they do light hearted themes and it would be difficult to come up with something but they have done it on at least three other similar occassions. I personally don't see who would be offended by a flag, or the google made to ressemble the Wall or something like that. If they were they would be offended by veterans day banner or Independance day banner but they still do those. Just don't understand the excuse myself.

Theres the Vietnam memorial wall I don't know if thats the wall you are talking about.

I remember the Google banner for remeberance day and that was pretty simple and not funny it was just a poppy lying next to the banner so google can do serious when they want.

Yeah it's the Vietnam Memorial wall, which I know if a monument for the soliders who died in Veitnam not every other war, I was just throwing out examples.

BUt yeah they did just a simple poppy so your right they can do serious, which was my point.

There's some statistic about the amount of searches done through Google per year. Where did people get their information before Google?

I bet they didn't go to a library and look it up.
