TODAY'S Google search doodle is dedicated to Uganda as she celebrates 49 years of independence today. The logo developed and seen by all who attempt a search on google in Uganda, is that of the independence day monument in Kampala between the Sheraton, Grand Imperial and Stan-Chart bank.

The  British Colonial Government constructed the monument just befoe  Uganda’s first independence cerebrations on October 9, 1962.  
 
It depicts a man unwrapping a  child and raising the child to touch the sky. The sculpture signifies a new born country let free from colonialism and  bondages.  
 
The monument was unveiled by Uganda’s first Prime Minister Apollo Milton Obote, on October 5, 1962, a few days before Uganda’s first Independence celebrations.
 
The Independence Monument was built by Gregory Magoba, one of Uganda’s first professional sculptors. Doodles are the redesign of the Google logo to mark holidays and anniversaries through the year.
