Number of Colonies of European Countries in History
Colonisation has been one of the most controversial events in the European history and this infographic made by Jakub Marian (Jakubmarian.com) shows the total number of colonies settled by European countries in the past.
Apart from the UK, which has been the European country with the highest number of colonies all over the world, many other countries had colonies including Belgium, Austria, Italy andGreece.
Did you know that also Denmark,Norway and Sweden had colonies?
Unfortunately, colonization created many problems that even today are not completely resolved.
What do you think the EU should do to solve this issue?
It is no secret that European commodities are popular all over the world and label the “Made in Europe” stands for quality and reliability.
Many European countries are associated with goods they export - like Sweden with affordable furniture, Germany - with beer, France - with wine, and countries of Southern Europe - with distinguished and delicious foods. This infographic designed by GlobalPost shows the most successful European export commodities.
The results from ILGA-Europe’s Rainbow Europe May 2015 Report
Radio Liberty has recently published this infographic based on the results of ILGA-Europe’s Report on LGBT rights.
LGBT rights remain the issue which still devides Europe into East and West. As you can see on the infographic many countries of Eastern Europe, especially former Soviet ones, show very low scores in the respect of LGBT rights. The countries with strong religious traditions such as Poland and Italy, are also on their way to tolerance and gender equality.
Baltic countries surprised with low scores as well, which somehow doesn’t fit into their general image of the most advanced new EU-members. How can you explain that?
On the top of the list you can find United Kingdom, Belgium and Malta, on the bottom -Azerbaijan, Russia and Armenia.
