Exactly half a century ago, the British flag – Union Jack – was lowered and the new Uganda flag hoisted to take its place in a historic event that took place at Kololo airstrip in Kampala.
That officially marked an end to nearly 70 years of British rule in Uganda and ushered in an era of renaissance for the east African nation.
And by that very event, Uganda was placed into a historical line of some 30 other African states to have achieved their autonomy from foreign rule at that time.
As expected, Google would have something special for the jubilating Ugandans. The logo of Google’s homepage will surely put a smile on some faces in Uganda.
