Black Ribbon Meaning Under Google Homepage Commemorates Hurricane Katrina

August 30, 2010 by · 2 Comments 

Black Ribbon Meaning Under Google Homepage Commemorates Hurricane Katrina – If you are regularly checking the web for any updates, you would perhaps notice the black ribbon located below Google’s homepage. If you hover your mouse into that image of black ribbon, you would notice that it pertains to Hurricane Katrina, the costliest natural disaster in the history of the United States.

The black ribbon symbolizes the thousands of lives and livelihoods that were lost during the height of Hurricane Katrina. It started in the Bahamas on August 23, 2005 and on August 29, exactly five years ago from now, Katrina officially made landfall near Buras-Triumph, Louisiana with 125 mph winds, as a strong Category 3 storm.

The effects of Katrina were felt throughout the Gulf Coast Regions with Louisiana and Mississippi being the most destroyed states which experienced great floods. By August 30th Katrina had dissipated, however, the damage remained for years. The black ribbon under Google’s logo will bring to the the attention of millions of people worldwide the tragedy that it was. Perhaps, it also calls us to be more aware about hurricane season so that we will be more prepared when another Katrina comes.

    Honestly, I wish they’d put a black ribbon up there for the Gulf Oil spill. Katrina’s damage may remain, but the way the spill’s being handled at the behest of the Federal Govn’t there won’t be much in the way of recovery. Katrina pales in comparison. Google is a joke.
