Google Doodle has been a household name for the last 21 years, as it celebrates historic events, inventions and birthdays. It released the first doodle inspired from the Burning Man Festival in 1998 — and replaced the second ‘o’ of Google in the logo by a figure similar to that of the festival’s logo.

Google search engine is the most visited website across the world, answering millions of queries. The company is one of the Big Four technology giants, coexisting with Apple, Facebook and Amazon.
