In keeping with its tradition of snubbing all things patriotic, Google completely ignores Flag Day and the U.S. Army’s birthday. Can’t celebrate any of those pesky patriotic holidays now, can it? Diversity! Citizens of the world and stuff!
I suppose Google is so international now days they can't say anything about Flag day, which is today.—

Unless the diversity includes being proud of America. That does not suit.
Twitter users express their disgust at Google.
It's Flag Day and Google doesn't have a cool animation, SHAME!—

If only the US flag had been drawn by an obscure European cartoonist, we might have a Google doodle about Flag Day.—

Stop bitterly clinging to your patriotism, rubes!
Why doesn't Google do a special logo for Flag Day? not important enough?—

Exactly. It, and every other holiday that honors America and its exceptionalism, is not important to Google.
But, some good news: You can head over to Bing ™ instead.
After opening Bing and smiling at their Flag Day pictorial I had to check Google to see what they did. Of course the answer is….nothing.—

Bing ™ realizes the importance of honoring America and Old Glory, even if Google executives do not.
