Chile National Day 2020 Celebrates To Google Doodle
Today’s Doodle depicts the third Chilean flag, which has been the country’s official flag since 1817. Every September all over the country, the flag is proudly hoisted by Chileans as a symbol of Fiestas Patrias celebrations. On this day in 1810, Chile celebrated the First National Government Board Assembly, which started the process of National from Spanish colonial rule and began an eight-year struggle for sovereignty.
Illustrated in the Doodle artwork is the bell-shaped, six-petalled bloom of the copihue, Chile’s national flower. This evergreen climbing vine thrives in a moist and cool environment, so the species is right at home in the misty cloud forests of Chile’s central and south-central regions.
Following its introduction to various countries around the world, the plant revealed an intriguing quality: its vine twines clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere, opposite to the counterclockwise twine exhibited in its native Southern Hemisphere. Although it has traveled far over the years, the copihue remains an unwavering symbol of Chilean identity.
The start of a multi-day celebration, known as Las Fiestas Patrias, is marked by parties that proudly reflect Chilean huaso culture, the local term for cowboys. Seasonal fairs known as fondas take place in outdoor ramadas where plenty of empanadas and anticuchos (or shish kabobs) are served along with cups of chicha. Traditional activities include kite-flying competitions, climbing a greased pole, and the national cueca dance. September 19th is the day to celebrate the Glories of the Army with a great military parade, usually held in Santiago’s O’Higgins Park.
Felices Fiestas Patrias!
