Today, August 15th is Gwangbokjeol in South Korea. Literally, the “Restoration of Light Day”. Commemorating South Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonial rule in 1945 and the creation of the South Korean government 3 years later in 1948.

Encouraged to fly the countries flag, Gwangbokjeol is a proud day full of nationalistic pride and commemoration for the Koreans and a day to appreciate the growth and continues prosperity of a nation.




Never one to let a day go by without a funky Goog-logo, Google’s homepage observes the occasion as well.


Celebrate Freedom,
