Today, Doodle for Google is celebrating Israel Independence Day 2022, which immediately follows Israeli Memorial Day or Yom HaZikaron.
On this day in 1948, Tel Aviv, the most popular State of Israel declared its independence, the celebrations for the nation’s important day “fall on the 5th day of Iyar (ה’ באייר),” which takes place sometime between late April and early May on the Gregorian Calendar.
Israel Independence Day 2022 celebrations are set to start from sunset on May 4th to sunset on May 5th with the Torch Lighting Ceremony on Mount Herzl where the speaker of the Israeli Parliament delivers congratulatory speech.
Following the opening ceremonies, firework shows and live performances full of folk dances, popular Israeli music and sing-alongs continue throughout the night. Families can proudly wave the flag of Israel while enjoying picnics, parades, and famous airplane fly-bys the day after. The holiday is concluded by the Israel Prize ceremony, where standout citizens are recognized and awarded for their cultural contributions to the country.
The search engine giant is now celebrating Israel Independence Day 2022 by the special new Doodle artwork on the homepage of Google specifically in the country.
