Turkey Upset With Google Over Green Colored Republican Day Doodle?

A thread at Google Web Search Help has a person from Turkey who is saying that him and many of his friends are happy that Google has a Doodle on Google Turkey Republic Day Logo

This person explained:

Google is my homepage and when i opened my browser today i saw that Google arranged a special logo for Republican day. Its really nice but my friends and i wonder if why the colour of logo is green? It has to be red colour actually, which is our flame colour. But we feel really disturbed since the colour is green because green colour means islamic pressure and terror since we've been in hard times because of mentioned situations.

Do people in Turkey really think Google made the logo green to support terrorism? Should Google have known to make this logo red instead?

Do you think that islam equals terorism? Because you seems to accept and imply that in your question.

No, I don't think that. But this person does.

Thanks for your comment Barry and to answer your first question, no, no sensible person in Turkey or elsewhere could think that Google supports terror. Mark, I'm old enough not to be offended by some extremists ataturk lovers, but thank you for your "helpful" answer.

Hey, Google is known for doing little tweeks against others they dont like.
