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
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?
