Google Celebrates International Women’s Day

Today is March 8, the International Women’s Day – and Google celebrates this with a special logo (the second “o” in “Google” is the sign for female – does it have a special name?).

This time, the logo is not linked to a search result, which is unusual but makes it a little more interesting... we now have to guess just what they are celebrating. (The answer, however, is given away as the image’s tool-tip.)

Ivan-Assen Ivanov clarifies: “The symbol for “female” is the traditional astronomy (or rather, astrology) symbol for the planet Venus.”

Update: The logo is linked now – apparently, leaving it out earlier on was not intentional.
