Google celebrated its 21st birthday on Friday with a retro doodle accompanied by a photo of a bulky computer that shows a Google search screen.

The doodle also has a timestamp dating back to September 27, 1998, the day the search giant was established by Stanford PhD students, Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

Initially, the search engine was called “BackRub” and it was later renamed “Google”.

In 2001, the company was granted a patent for its technology and the page was listed as its investor.
