As India marks its 74th Republic Day on January 26, Google joined the celebrations by putting out a Doodle on the special day. Republic Day marks the date on which the Constitution of India came into effect in 1950.

The Google Doodle features the work of Ahmedabad-based guest artist Parth Kothekar, Google said. The artwork from intricately hand-cut paper shows various elements of the Republic Day parade, such as the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the India Gate, the CRFP marching contingent, and motorcycle riders.

The doodle depicts the letters 'g', 'o', 'g', 'l' and 'e' in lowercase black fonts while a circle over the dome of the President's House symbolically represents the other 'o' in 'Google'. Peacock and floral patterns add a layer of charm to the art in monochrome.

While the country gained its freedom in August 1947, it wasn’t until January 26, 1950 that the Indian Constitution was signed into law, making India a republic under Purna Swaraj, or complete self-rule.
