Google Doodle for Independence Day of Honduras

Google celebrates and the Independence Day of Honduras:



Honduras is a republic in Central America. It was previously known as Spanish Honduras to differentiate it from British Honduras, which became the modern-day state of Belize.



Honduras was home to several important indigenous cultures, most notably the Maya. Much of the country was conquered by Spain who introduced its predominant language and many of its customs in the sixteenth century. It became independent in 1821 and has been a republic since the end of Spanish rule.



Its size is just over 112,492 km² with an estimated population of almost eight million. Its capital is Tegucigalpa. (Wikipedia)
