Google’s Doodle For Both The Olympics & Valentine’s Day

If you visit Google today, you will see Google has a 3rd (actually, 4th) Olympics logo up today. But if you look closely, you may notice the logo has a heart designed into it. If you look even closer, you may notice that Google’s alternative text tag for the image says, “Happy Valentine’s Day” in it.

I noticed this when I at first posted, incorrectly, that Google was skipping out on the Valentine’s Day logos in exchange for the Olympics. But it turns out, as spotted by Michel, that the Olympics logo is also a Valentine’s Day logo. Here is a picture:

Google's Alt Tag for Valentines Day

A very nice touch by Google. If you want to see all the Valentine’s Day logos out there from the search industry, click here. To see an updated gallery of Olympics logos, click here.

I should point out that Google had two logos for the Olympics up yesterday. They took down their Luge logo due to the sad death of an Olympics Luge athlete, in exchange for a snowboarder.
