The 2012 Earth Day logo from Google

This Earth Day marks the 11th year that Google has created some kind of special logo to mark the occasion. Working forward from 2001, we can really see the creative progression of how much time the big G has thrown into their holiday logos.

Earth Day 2012 marks the first time Google has created a “live-action” logo. Place your mouse over the image, and you’ll watch a time-lapse of flowers growing. According to Google exec Marissa Mayer, ”doodler” Jennifer Hom planted and grew the logo.

The search giant also added a link below the graphic encouraging people to find community gardens, purchase discounted seeds, and connect with other gardeners.

Below, I’ve updated our one sheet of Google’s green logos dating back to 2001. Enjoy – and Happy Earth Day!
