Google’s Martin Luther King Logo

Google is showing a Martin Luther King logo in the US today.

I can’t see that one in Germany (I suppose the same is true for most other countries, and the Web Accelerator doesn’t help either), but there’s a smaller version showing for everyone on the Personalized Google Homepage. I’m not sure why Google thinks the logo can’t be shown in countries which don’t have this particular holiday.

The logo is subtitled “I have a dream” and shows Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King surrounded by two children. The logo links to a Google search for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The first site isn’t Googledotted at all, I suppose that’s because this logo isn’t showing everywhere. From that site:

“Each year on the third Monday of January schools, federal offices, post office and banks across America close as we celebrate the birth, the life and the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is a time for the nation to remember the injustices that Dr. King fought. A time to remember his fight for the freedom, equality, and dignity of all races and peoples. A time to remember the message of change through nonviolence”

More about Martin Luther King and this holiday at Wikipedia.
