Google India's home page Doodle on August 15th 2014 : Independent India's first stamp

The doodle on the Google India home page this year is a familiar symbol - independent India's first stamp.

The first stamp issued by free India was months after Independence on November 21, 1947 and it depicted the Indian national flag with the popular slogan - "Jai Hind (Long Live India)" written in Hindi. The stamp was valued at three and one-half annas.

Google has been commemorating India's Independence Day on its India home page since 2003.
