Google is also celebrating LGBT Pride month by including rainbow flag imagery on LGBT-related search results.

This comes after the earlier Google doodle that marked what would have been the 66th birthday of Gilbert Baker, the LGBT rights activist credited with developing the rainbow flag that is now commonly associated with the LGBT community.
