Google has paid tribute to the victims of the Christchurch terror attack on the same day a National Remembrance Service was held.

The internet company darkened the letters on the Google homepage, as well as placing a blackened peace symbol below the search bar.

In a nice touch when you hover the cursor over the ribbon or Google, the message "Kia Kaha We Stand Together" shows.

Fifty people died in the attack on two mosques on March 15, in what was New Zealand's worst terror attack.

A National Remembrance Service for the victims was held at Christchurch's Hagley Park on Friday morning.

Dignitaries from the Muslim community, the Government and celebrities including Yusuf Islam - better known as Cat Stevens - paid tribute to the victims.

The names of all 50 victims were also read out in the touching ceremony.
