Europe

A very interesting card...well, its a map, it cant be bad :)


Its a map of Europe, and is supposed to show which European countries are a part of the European Union....they are the ones in pink colour...the green ones are like, pending, i guess...and the brown ones probably just signify countries which are not a part of the Union, neither are into it...well, this is more from general knowledge, coz i cant decipher the explanations...they are in Finnish (and another of the Scandinavian languages, if im correct).
Anyone willing to translate is welcome...there are also some letter symbols, signifying something, so i could use some help with it....i really feel ignorant at times like this...

Anyways....there is just one thing i dislike about the card....the FYROM word in the brackets...if there is something that makes me cringe is when i read FYROM....

The only thing I can tell you (almost) for sure is that the 2nd language is Swedish, because Finland has 2 official languages (Finnish and Swedish). I don't understand any of these languages, but I think that countries with symbol "E" have euro currency and the ones with "S" are in the Schengen zone (there are no borders between them). But I can tell you just out of my own knowledge about the EU... I hope someone else will help you to translate it correctly :)

you know, that makes a lot of sense, that the S letter stand for countries in the Schengen Zone..didnt even think of it, but by having a better look, those countries are indeed in the Schengen Zone
As for the "E" symbol, yeah i second that as well....but i had no idea for the "S" one :)

Thanks a lot! :))
