The regular logo has been replaced with an image that includes the Malaysian flag and a ketupat.

Ketupat, also known as 'packed rice', is made from rice that has been wrapped in a woven palm leaf pouch and boiled. Google has previously had a dedicated 'doodle' logo to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Malaysia's independence in 2007.

Malaysians are celebrating a feast of holidays this week, with Independence Day today coinciding with Hari Raya Aidilfitri – a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, on 30 and 31 August.

A number of brands and organisations have been getting in to the spirit with campaigns and contests tied specifically to the double festival.
