History of German Unity Day

German Flag

The holiday celebrates the day when the Federal Republic of Germany and the Democratic Republic of Germany united to create one single, federal Germany, on October 3, 1990. German Unity Day is the only national holiday in Germany, as all other holidays are administered by the individual states. German Unity Day is observed with speeches, marches, and public events, including the government's official Unity Day celebration street festival, which draws about 300,000 people annually. Each year the location changes so that the celebration rotates among all of the German states.

The German Flag

Germany's flag is displayed, particularly on public buildings, on German Unity Day. This flag is three units high and five units wide and is divided horizontally into thirds. The top third is jet black, the middle third traffic red and the bottom third is gold. Together these colors represent the freedom of Germany as a whole and each of its people. In the past, the colors represented: the darkness of servitude (black); bloody conflict (red); and the light of freedom (gold)
