Google Celebrates Pakistan's Independence
Google Doodle on Pakistan Day is an interesting landmark from Islamabad.
Celebrating the 68th Independence of Pakistan, Google has posted a doodle on the Pakistan homepage. The doodle features the blooming flower-shaped Pakistan Monument located at Shakarparian -a small hill near Zero Point in Islamabad, Pakistan. This monument is a national monument that represents the country's four provinces and three territories.
Before an architect was finalised to design this monument, a competition was held among notable architects during General Musharraf's government. Arif Masood's plan was selected for the final design.
The four main petals of the Pakistan Monument represent the four provinces -Balochistan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, and Sindh - while the three smaller petals represent the three territories - Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Kashmir and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas.
Prayers for Pakistan!
