You don't normally think of Google as being particularly subtle. Minimalist, definitely, but not subtle. And yet, that is exactly what they have been today. Look at the screen shot above, notice anything out of the ordinary?
The longest serving British Monarh
Today, 9th Sept 2015, Queen Elizabeth II became the longest reigning British Monarch, having been on the throne for over 63 years.
Google normally celebrates such notable events or historic birthdays with a special banner, or Google Doodle, on its home page. They may be static, they may be animated, some of them are even fully-fledged games. There's even a museum to previous doodles on the Google site. They are gorgeous, but they are not subtle :-)
