New Delhi: A sketch of Delhi's Red Fort takes guard on the Google home page on the occasion of 15 August 2011, India's 65th Independence Day. The Red Fort has an important place in the history of Delhi and that of India. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000, the fort was built in 1648 during the reign of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. It remained a focal point in the struggles for the throne of Delhi ever since.

It is from the ramparts of the Red Fort that the Prime Minister of India delivers his Independence Day address to the nation.

An distinctive feature of the Red Fort today is the fluttering Tricolour atop. But the Indian flag is missing from the Google doodle for August 15, 2011.
