Pete tells that the doodle artwork is the painting scenes of children planting flags for some time now.
He says, “As a young Cub Scout, my son’s troop would often be recruited to plant flags to honor veterans. My wife and I would often tag along.”
Pete Damon tells in Google Doodle page that he had witnessed children taking part in patriotism on Veterans Day when large fields, usually in public spaces –filled with a sea of little flags.
Pete says, “I thought it would make for the perfect painting subject. I asked permission from a friend and fellow veteran, Hillary Moll, who captured these scenes in photographs to use some of them as a reference.”
