Why Doesn't My Country Show The Google International Women's Day Logo?

Today is International Women's Day and like always, Google has a logo to honor the women around the world. They had one in 2012, 2011 and 2010. The question is, why doesn't the logo show up on all versions of Google?

First, here is the logo:

Google's International Women's Day Logo 2013

Currently, the logo is on the following Google properties: Lithuania, Ethiopia, Argentina, Ghana, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, Bosnia And Herzegovina, Spain, Netherlands, Oman, Tanzania, Albania, New Zealand, Greenland, United Arab Emirates, India, Azerbaijan, Kenya, Turkey, Czech Republic, San Marino, France, Rwanda, Slovakia, Peru, Norway, Montenegro, Ukraine, Bahrain, Finland, Libya, Indonesia, United States, Sweden, Vietnam, Russia, Bulgaria, Romania, Portugal, South Africa, Malaysia, Senegal, Mozambique, Uganda, Hungary, Brazil, Kuwait, Congo [DRC], Gibraltar, Ireland, Nigeria, Ecuador, Macedonia [FYROM], Australia, Chile, Thailand, Haiti, Iraq, Hong Kong, Denmark, Poland, Morocco, Namibia, Switzerland, Estonia, Lebanon, Uzbekistan, Colombia, Burundi, Taiwan, Cyprus, Qatar, Italy, Palestinian Territories, Venezuela, Israel, Iceland, Zimbabwe, Jordan, Latvia, Japan, Mexico, Egypt, Serbia, United Kingdom, and Greece.

In fact, we have complaints in the Google Web Search Help forum that there is no logo in Canada or India. Maybe those countries do not specifically celebrate International Women's Day?

The Google Doodler that designed this logo is Betsy Bauer. You can see she tweeted about it saying:

Nice job Besty!

Bing also has a background image for the special day:
