We generally see Google Logo in four vibrant colors i.e. blue, red, yellow, and green, but, today we are seeing its logo in grey color only. Why is it?
Many users today when opening the search engine saw the same and then move to Twitter to find the answer because the logo is not clickable as Google generally does for Google Doodle.
One user tweeted “Today when I opened google.com, I saw that its logo is in grey color and believe there is something wrong with my computer”.
Another user tweeted “There might be some kind of glitch from Google’s end”. The clarification to the same has come when Google CEO, Sundar Pichai tweeted, “Sending our deepest condolences to the people of the UK and around the world mourning the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Her steadfast leadership and public service have been a constant throughout many of our lifetimes. She will be missed”.
From that tweet, it came to light that “Google has changed its logo color to grey in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away on Thursday at the age of 96 in Scotland.
What does Google Grey Logo mean?
This is not the first time Google has changed its logo color to Grey.
Back in 2018 also, at the funeral of George H.W. Bush (the 41st President of the U.S.), Google changed its logo color to grey.
So, Google uses the grey color logo to pay tribute to selected notable people when they passed away.
