Tonight the world united as one with the London 2012 Closing Ceremony. Already people are celebrating the United Kingdom Olympics as one of the best Olympics ever. One of the most symbolic happenings at the closing ceremony includes athletes walking into the stadium mixed and not by nationality.
This is symbolic of how athletes have come together and united. Each country is still represented by a flag bearer symbolic of all the countries that have participated in the Olympic Games. This tradition of world unity started at the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne Australia.
Google Doodle: London 2012 Closing Ceremony
We think the Doodler responsible for the London 2012 Closing Ceremony doodle has done a very good job to integrate and portray the world unity at the London 2012 Closing Ceremony. It may look like the doodle is chaotic with all the athletes just standing around on the field but once the world unity is understood it makes sense.
The London 2012 Closing Ceremony if thoroughly analyzed is indeed a picture that tells the story of the Olympics. We have included an image with all the London 2012 Olympic Gamed doodles, if you look at these images and then at the London 2012 Closing Ceremony doodle, you will see all these doodles integrated into one!
The “G” in Google is symbolic of the “London 2012 Fencing”, the first “o” by “London 2012 Table Tennis”, the second “o” by the “London 2012 Shot Put” and the “G” by the “London 2012 Synchronized Swimming” athletes. The “l” by the “London 2012 Pole Vault” athletes and the “G” for the “London 2012 Football” games. It is not 100% clear to me what the athlete in the last “e” represents. Combining these letters into one and it spell the words “Google”.
In the London 2012 Closing Ceremony you will see all 16 sports that Google have promoted via there Google Doodles over the past Olympics. I also suspect that there is much more symbolic hidden within the last Google Doodle for the Olympic games of 2012 than what is immediately evident.
London 2012 Closing Ceremony
At the end of the London 2012 Closing Ceremony, there will be a handover to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympic Games, and the Olympic Flame will be extinguished, signaling the end of the Olympics. The Stadium will then come alive for one last time in these Games with celebrations.
The Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games will be titled ‘A Symphony of British Music’; to celebrate the fact that music has been one of Britain’s strongest cultural exports over the last 50 years. The worldwide broadcast of the Ceremony will start at 9pm and feature more than 4,100 performers, including 3,500 adult volunteers and 380 schoolchildren from the six east London Host Boroughs.
