German Reunification Day or Germany’s National Day is celebrated on October 3. German National Day is celebrated as National holiday and is also known as Day of German Unity. The unification day is celebrated in Germany as a part of commemorating the reunification that occurred in 1990.
Reunification Day is considered as Federal Republic of Germany and is a legal holiday there. An alternative choice for National Day is November 9, the day that has much historic importance in German history. It is the day when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 and defeat of Hitler’s first coup in 1923, proclamation of the German Republic in 1918. But it was considered as inappropriate as National Day as the day is same in which Nazi led activities against Jews take place.
On this special day Google released German Reunification Day 2006 Google Doodle. The doodle was quiet simple. It contained a flying German flag behind the usual Google logo. The national flag itself is considered as a pride element for each nation. Respecting national flag is just like giving respect to nation itself. So Google appropriately placed the National Flag in the Google doodle.
As to memorize the Uprising of 1953 in East Germany and West Germany June 17 is considered as a public holiday during the years 1954 to 1990 before the German Reunification celebration starts. On that time it is even known as ‘Day of the German Unity’.Later in 1963 it is renamed as ‘National Day of Memorial of the German People’ by the president of Federal Republic. So as a result of that German Reunification Day is celebrated twice in the year 1990.
