Today is Memorial Day in the United States and many of the search engines have special logos and themes for the day. Google, on the other hand has a tiny little American flag to commemorate the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces.

Bing goes big with a really strong photos of Arlington National Cemetery where there are 624 acres where the US armed forces have been buried, beginning with the Civil War, as well as reinterred dead from earlier wars. There are currently about 400,000 people buried there.

Here is Google's home page that shows that tiny little American flat. Clearly a huge contrast to what you see on Bing:

Google Memorial Day Flag

Every year when Google doesn't do a fully blown Doodle, it sometimes suggests to people that Google doesn't care. Instead, Google places a small US flag under the search box. Google says that for somber days, they do not like to make fun and cheerful Doodles. So for Memorial Day, they use a small flag.

And even Dogpile is proud with their animated home page:

And here is our web site today:

I don't think we will be posting any other stories here today out of respect for the day. We will continue tomorrow.
