The gray Google logo was released on Wednesday, December 5 in honor of the National Day of Mourning for former president George H.W.
Bush, according to Google’s explanation for the color change.
Wednesday has been declared a federal holiday by President Trump, specifically a National Day of Mourning.
Additionally, all major U.S. stock markets will be closed, including the New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, and Dow Jones Industrial Average.
Over the course of the services, four men will be giving eulogies for the 41st president: Bush’s son, former President George W. Bush; Bush’s friend, former Canadian Minister Brian Mulroney; Bush’s friend, former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY); and historian Jon Meacham, who wrote a biography on Bush.
During the services, POTUS and FLOTUS will sit in the front pulpit next to the Bush family, according to The Washington Post .
