The ceremonious occasion signified the sovereignty and unity of Nigeria’s 36 states and will be marked with fireworks, dancing, and a state banquet.
According to google, the doodle is a nod to Nigeria’s coat of arms— specifically the eagle which represents strength.

“Today’s Doodle celebrates Nigeria’s Independence Day, which is observing its 60th anniversary this year.”
Google added that;
“The primary colors of the Doodle are the same as Nigeria’s national colors: green signifying the country’s agricultural wealth and white a marker for unity and peace.”
The lost years and the lost strength shall be restored in the name of Jesus!

Over the years, Independence Day has been an opportunity for Nigerians to showcase their rich and varied culture, from suya (spicy meat skewer) and jollof rice (one-pot tomato rice) to juju music and afrobeats.
Happy Independence Day, Nigeria!
