You may be wondering today about the meaning of a black ribbon on Google, and if you have been using Google for many years you would have seen a black ribbon used in the past by Google.
The Black Ribbon page on Facebook lists many times we have seen this symbol used in the past, they point to Google using a black ribbon to support the relief effort after Hurricane Katrina, and after the London bombings they also used a black ribbon to show respect.
Only Kent has posted information that highlights Hurricane Katrina and the marking of the 5th anniversary since the disaster in New Orleans.
Some users have started discussions asking for the meaning of Google’s black ribbon – seen here on Google’s forum – but if they hovered over the black ribbon on the Google home page today they would have seen some text pop up stating “Hurricane Katrina”.
