Today is Flag Day in the United State of America and Bing, Ask.com and Dogpile all have logos and themes or mentions for the day. We even have a theme here, but Google and Yahoo do not. Here are pictures of the Flag Day themes I have found:

Bing:

Bing Flag Day

DogPile:

Dogpile Flag Day

Ask.com has a mention:

Ask.com Flag Day

Search Engine Roundtable:

Now, Google does do Flag day type of logos/doodles internationally. It was Russia Day and check out this logo:

How about Philippine Independence Day:

philippinesind2010-hp

Or Day of the Enamored in Brazil?

Google Japan also had a special logo for Hayabusa returning to earth:

hayabusa10-hp

An interesting mistake of some sorts also Doodle related happened over the weekend. Remember the FIFA logos, well, as reported at Websnoic.nl, Google Morocco, Egypt, Jordan and Algeria showed a special Doodle that should have looked like this:

الفائز في مسابقة Doodle 4 Google 'أنا أحب كرة القدم'

For about 8 hours, the logo looked like this:

google_maroc_wrong

Something was corrupt about that image. It is now fixed.

Anyway, for all American's - happy Flag day. Note, all the logos above are within the past few days, so happy days to you all also!
