 The color of the doodle, which features images of athletes in various Winter Games events, is modeled after the Rainbow Flag — a symbol of LGBT pride. The doodle also quotes the Olympic Charter as saying that there should be no “discrimination of any kind” in the Olympic games — and is linked to search results for the set of rules and guidelines governing the Olympic games.
