Black Ribbon Meaning: Google Black Ribbon Explained
Black Ribbon Meaning: Google Black Ribbon Explained – Today, Google has placed a black ribbon on their homepage, leaving many to wonder what the ribbon is used for. The company has used the black ribbon before in the past, and each time it is placed on their homepage the term “black ribbon” becomes one of the hottest trends on the Google “hot searches” list.
Google has used the black ribbon to show support for countries and people that are going through a hard time. Previously, they used it to show support for the relief effort after Hurricane Katrina. They also used the black ribbon after the London Bombings as a token of respect.
Today is the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and the black ribbon is likely on the page to honor this landmark. The city has come so far since they were devastated, and even President Barack Obama spoke today, saying that the city has shown “untold resilience” after the oil spill devastated the economy of the city once again.
Google’s forum is littered with inquiries about the appearance of the black ribbon, but no officials have commented on the ribbon so far. Because there is nothing going on in the world that would warrant the use of the ribbon, some sites have stated that the ribbon was placed on the page to commemorate the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and to celebrate the recovery of the city of New Orleans. Hopefully this will be the last time that we see the ribbon used, because it usually follows a horrific event.
