Today is celebrated as the Earth Day across the world. The Earth Day Network marks the occasion by co ordinated events in 192 countries. 1970 marks the first celebration of the Earth Day.

While the Earth Day Flag is created by the proponent of such a day in the honor of earth, John McConnell, since 2013, an Earth Day anthem has also been adopted by the UNO. Proposed and written by Abhay K, an Indian poet-diplomat, the earth day anthem is in eight languages, and is set to the Beethoven’s tune of “Ode to Joy”. Here are the lyrics in english:

“Joyful joyful we adore our Earth in all its wonderment

Simple gifts of nature that all join into a paradise
Now we must resolve to protect her
Show her our love throughout all time
With our gentle hand and touch
We make our home a newborn world
Now we must resolve to protect her
Show her our love throughout all time
With our gentle hand and touch

We make our home a newborn world”

Google is celebrating this earth day with four specially designed doodles, depicting the Rufous hummingbird, the Japanese Macaque, the Veiled Chameleon, the Puffer Fish, the Dung Beetle and the Moon Jellyfish.

Happy Earth Day!
