Google Logo - 50th Anniversary of JFK's Inaugural Address


Google Logo - 50th Anniversary of JFK's Inaugural Address

Google, Inc. is at it yet again. This time, the California-based Mountain View company is commemorating the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address with its homepage logo. And the logo is quite astounding.

Formulated from a bunch of words, like: civility, nation, effort, hop, peace, unite and country, the logo exemplifies Google's creativity and insightfulness when it comes to choosing a Google logo of historic significance.

Striking and thought-provoking, the JFK logo is a hit. Simple, yet ornate, Google has really outdone itself this time. It's the first time (that I know of) that Google has created a logo that is almost entirely comprised of words...words that create the overall image.

In summation, I thinks it's cool.

What Words Are In It?

So, what are all the words that make up the JFK 50th Inaugural Address logo? Well, here they are: us, what, any, we, our, devotion, deeds, light, offer, time, writ, ask, of, civility, citizens, of, the, greater, nation, world, more, progress, globe, liberty, alter, endeavor, fruitful, you, glow, now, effort, can do, quest, for, peace, may, oath, help, truly, shall, energy, help, us, anew, heritage, renew, let, your, origins, free, good, deeds, new, know, pledge, unite, success, both, friend, sides, tap, who, rejoicing, for, be, your, he, and country.

John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address

JFK's Inaugural Address is considered by many to be on of the best speeches in U.S. history, and this logo by Google is comprised of several keywords that are found throughout his famous inaugural address.

For example, etched in stone at John F. Kennedy's Arlington National Cemetery gravesite, JFK's most famous and most well-known words read:

"And so my fellow Americans — ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world — ask not what America will do for you. But what together we can do for the freedom of man.”

Google's JFK logo is here to remind all of us that his beautiful speech lives on...and, that we must still work together to ensure our freedoms...especially those of peace and liberty!
