Google’s special occasion logos are supposed to be lighthearted tributes to some person, event, or thing … but it’s not lighthearted when a Google logo upsets the very people it was supposed to honor.
That’s what happened Tuesday, when Google first posted a Veterans Day logo showing hats representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. Seems Google forgot the U.S. Coast Guard, and heard about it from members of that branch of our military.
To their credit, Google quickly posted a mea culpa and added a Coast Guard hat to their logo. It now sits atop the L. In the old version, the L had no hat.
