Happy Fourth of July everyone and I hope you enjoyed the fireworks last night.

Like every July 4th, the search engines dress up their home pages with festive logos and themes to celebrate the day. Below I will post the logos from Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask.com for today. To see the past years logos see 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004.

One of the biggest complaints this year is that Google's logo, although nice, does not have an American flag!

There are Americans and non-Americans that are bewildered by the glaring omission of the flag. Personally, I think all the landmarks in the logo make up for the flag not being in the logo. Of course, many would disagree with me.

Yahoo has an awesome flash logo:

Bing has a very proud theme:

Bing Logo

Ask.com:

Ask Logo

DogPile surprised me by not having anything specific to July Fourth, but does have the old BBQ tip logo.

Here is our theme:

SER July Fourth

So as you can see, Bing and Google both don't have flags in the logo. I think they still both symbolize the Fourth of July and do justice.

keep in mind, Google didn't have a logo on Google Canada for Canadian Day.
