Google's Earth Day Doodles

Google have raised awareness of Earth Day for the last 10 years with a new Doodle. The doodle designs have got more creative and complex with the years and have touched upon different planetary themes and concerns such as solar energy to polar ice caps.

We're presenting the last 10 years of Google Earth Day logos

2001: The first Google Earth Day doodle, back in April 22, 2001 was a simple. The 'O's in the Google logo were replaced by the western and the eastern hemisphere for the earth.

2002: The 2002 Google Earth Day doodle did away with the two-hemispheres and replaced only one 'O' with an image of the earth but added some clouds for effect.

2003: The 2003 Google Earth Day doodle had some beings from outer space. Two aliens gaze at the earth sitting atop the Google logo, quite like how lovebirds on earth look at the moon.

2004: A happy fish with mountains in the background was the theme for Google's 2004 Earth Day doodle.

2005: The 2005 edition of Google's Earth Day doodle has more members from the animal kingdom, including a squirrel and a bird family.

2006: In 2006 the Google logo went green for Earth Day with solar and wind energy.

2007: The 2007 Google Earth Day doodle had the Google logo in the form of an iceberg to highlight the melting of the polar ice caps.

2008: The Google logo appeared as a natural rock formation with a stream running through it for the 2008 Earth Day.

2009: In 2009 Google went partially underwater with its Earth Day doodle to highlight the rich diversity of life in the water.

2010: 2010 was the 40th anniversary of the Earth Day and the search engine giant transformed its logo into an illustration of a forest with sunlight filtering through the leaves creating an impression of the Google logo.

2011: Google has gone interactive for it's 11th Earth Day doodle that has in it ticklish pandas, frolicking penguins, a growling lion, a cascading waterfall, waterfall climbing fish, a fish devouring bear, birds, butterflies, a koala and a jumping frog. We take you back to the previous ten doodles that Google doodled to celebrate April 22.
