Today is St. Andrew's Day - and Google have celebrated the feast day of Scotland's patron saint with a Google doodle.
The logo's usual bold colours have been swapped for tartan, with the Saltire - the Scottish flag of St Andrew with a white cross on a blue background - is flying.
The St. Andrew's Day celebration has also been marked by Barack Obama, as The White House yesterday sent Scotland a St. Andrew's Day message for the first time.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said America "congratulated" the people of Scotland as it prepared to mark its national day.
In a statement on the US Department of State website, she said: "Scotland's unique culture and traditions have long been admired around the world, and the special ties between our two nations date back to the founding of the United States.

"From Patrick Henry and John Paul Jones to Davy Crockett and Neil Armstrong, trail-blazing Scottish-Americans have helped shape the history of our country in profound ways.
"Today, the United States and Scotland continue to share strong ties rooted in our common ancestry, values, and interests. Our people work together on many of the most pressing challenges of our time, and both houses of the United States Congress have Friends of Scotland Caucuses to further promote friendship and co-operation between Scotland and the United States.
"I wish the people of Scotland a joyous St Andrew's Day celebration and a successful year ahead. We look forward to further deepening our friendship throughout the future."
Also marking the event is underwear designer Michelle Mone, awarded an OBE for her services to the industry last week.
Her limited edition range made from specially designed Ultimo tartan goes on sale in Debenhams today.

Happy St Andrew's day too - from another Scottish resident.  Grin
i wonder if Obama sent a message to Russia and Greece too ?, as they have Andrew as their patron saint.
