I just checked it on Google.co.nz because I thought it was a joke.
Yes, ugly.... but not from google

I'm seeing a Chinese language alt-text even though I'm on otherwise-English google.com. Google a while ago started to localize the logos independent of which site I'm at (so I'm now regularly getting Chinese celebration logos even though I'm on google.com).

I just noticed this too when visiting Google.com in Finland.

I think it's nice. Simple and beautiful.

google started a few weeks ago using geo-info for showing doodle on google.com
eg. the Oktoberfest-Doodle was available at google.com from germany with german alt-title.

that is just the first time you see this.
