MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Google is celebrating Veterans Day with a new red, white and blue Doodle that was designed by a veteran.

Users who visit Google's homepage will be treated to the colorful artwork that depicts a group of men and women who served in the Armed Forces as they march down a street amongst a cheering crowd and patriotic confetti.

"The artwork for today's doodle was created by Doodler Olivia Huynh in collaboration with myself and the network of veterans at Google," noted Doodler Diana Tran who served in the Marine Corps.

"She's done a wonderful job of capturing the celebratory and inclusive nature of Veterans Day. Today, I hope you'll join us in honoring our veterans who sacrificed so that we can enjoy our freedom," she continued.

"To all veterans everywhere, thank you for your service."

Veterans Day, originally titled Armistice Day, was first created to celebrate the end of World War I. It was made a legal holiday in 1954 and was given a new name to be more inclusive for all veterans who have served.
