BERLIN, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- An Oregon professor and self-described palindrome enthusiast said the date for Germany's Unity Day forms a palindrome, and will be the last for 1,000 years.

Aziz Inan, a professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Portland and a palindrome enthusiast, said the date for Thursday's Unity Day in the German style is 3-10-2013, making it the same backward and forward, and it will be the last palindrome date for the Oct. 3 holiday until the year 3013, The Local.de reported Thursday.

Unity Day celebrates the reunification of West and East Germany in 1990.
