Tiny US Flag on Google homepage for Labor Day

One of the best places to advertise online has to be Google and if anything is featured on their homepage, then it has to be both good news for the thing being featured and extremely welcomed if at no cost. Today, the US Flag can clearly be seen on Google’s homepage for Labor Day 2013.

You won’t see this tiny flag in the UK obviously, although a quick look on Google.com reveals the American flag under the search box. Personally, we feel this is a great idea and love seeing Google honor certain special events and dates out of respect but not all bloggers agree with this assumption.

Thanks to the US flag being tiny on Google’s homepage it seems some people take this as a mark of disrespect, although we don’t agree with this viewpoint as this size American flag has been used on a number of occasions to highlight events and holidays in the United States.

The US Labor Day will mean different things to people visiting Google today, but one blogger created an article claiming this tiny flag “insults American Labor” thanks to it being “barely visible”. They continue to give reasons that include a claim of Google being afraid of GOP.

Take a look at that article through the above link and let us know if you agree with this political view, or if you love the way Google respects special dates with pictures and text on one of the most looked at pages online?

Have you seen any good Labor Day deals in the sales today? For some of Product Reviews readers Labor Day will mean sales today, and in turn would deliver some bargains in consumer electronics and other products in a time when budgets might be pretty tight.

Both Walmart and Best Buy have a number of products at discount, but we know there are many more US online stores offering something to mark today.

Well it is Labor Day so Google didn’t put in too much labor in design. It’s simple.

The U.S. has been virulently anti-labor. The U.S. flag does not symbolize support for labor. That Google doesn’t put out a clear and strong support of Labor Day tells us Google is virulently anti-labor.
