Happy Indepedence Day of India!
Do you guys noticed that the "Indepedence Day of India" logo is without the trademark, and the "Liberation Day of Korea" has it?

Haochi > all the countries have different names for their "national holiday". In USA it "Independence Day", in France it's just "FĂȘte Nationale" ("Bastille Day" in English).

But for the trademark, I have noticied that and I think it's just a default, because the "TM" is on the usual google logo.

Guys can anyone confirm me whether india celebrates 59th independence or 60th ?

President page reports 60th
NDTV reports 60th

Doordarshan reports 59th

Sankar, 59 is correct. Year of Independence was 1947. In other words, 59 completed years and entering the 60th year.

On Aug 15th 1947 – Viscount Lord Louis Mountbatten -declared India to be independant. So if my count is correct, this is the 59th yr of Independence!!

<< Sankar, 59 is correct. Year of Independence was 1947. In other words, 59 completed years and entering the 60th year. >>

That's correct – both 59 and 60 are correct depending on their context.

On August 15th 1948, they probably would have celebrated 1 year of independence. Therefore, this year they should be celebrating 59 years of independence.

However, on the August 15th 1948 they could have also been celebrating their 2nd Independence Day, meaning this year would be their 60th Independence Day (rather than 60 years of independence, which would be wrong).
