    India got independence from the British on August 15, 1947, after which the Constitution was adopted on November 26, 1949. It came into effect on January 26, 1950, and since then, India celebrates Republic Day on January 26 every year.

    This year, for the first time, the parade will see 10 chief guests - the leaders of all member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN. In another first, the ASEAN flag will also be flown during the parade.

    The Google Doodle was created by New Delhi-based illustrator, Ibrahim Rayintakath.

    The artist used geometric shapes to create the background of the Doodle, one that is "inspired by the vibrant colors and patterns of traditional hand-loom draperies from different states."
