Ghana's colours featured on Google's opening page

The image that will greet Google users around the world today will be that of an animated drum decked in Ghana’s colours. The doodle, which is dedicated to the World Cup, also features a dancing tree, in Brazil’s national colours.
Doodles are the fun changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries and the lives of famous or historically important people.
In 1998, before the company was even incorporated, the concept of the doodle was born when Google founders Larry and Sergey played with the corporate logo to indicate that they would be out of office attending the Burning Man festival in Nevada, USA.
They placed a stick figure drawing behind the 2nd “o” in the word, Google, and the revised logo was intended as a comical message to Google users that the founders were “out of office”. The idea of decorating the company logo to celebrate notable events was born.
Over time, the demand for doodles has risen, and a dedicated team of illustrators or “doodlers” are responsible for creating the images that liven up the Google homepage and bring smiles to Google users around the world. The team has created over 2,000 doodles for Google’s home pages around the world.
