Google Takes Aim At Russia's Anti-Gay Laws With Latest 'Doodle'


Google debuted its latest "doodle" on Thursday evening, just one day before the Sochi Olympics opening ceremonies, and the company seems to be taking a stand against Russia's anti-gay "propaganda" law.


Featuring silhouettes of athletes above the letters, the coloring is the same pattern as the rainbow gay-pride flag. Clicking the image takes you to the search result of "Olympic Charter."

The main point the company wants to make, it seems, is being against discrimination. Below the search box, Google has this text taken from the Olympic Charter:
