Countries of EuropeA blank Map of Europe. Every country has an id which is its ISO-3166-1-ALPHA2 code in lower case. Members of the EU have a class="eu", countries in europe (which I found turkey to be but russia not) have a class="europe". Certain countries are further subdivided the United Kingdom has gb-gbn for Great Britain and gb-nir for Northern Ireland. Russia is divided into ru-kgd for the Kaliningrad Oblast and ru-main for the Main body of Russia. There is the additional grouping #xb for the "British Islands" (the UK with its Crown Dependencies - Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man) and the Kingdom of Denmark (Denmark, Faroe Islands, Greenland) Contributors.

Pedantic, but the Hebrides are not part of Great Britain (when talking strictly about it as an island). Also it looks like some non-answer islands have disappeared and others are just gray.

I have some issues with this map and I am hoping to replace it sometime in the future. The new map will solve the problems you've mentioned, thank you for your feedback!

Not all the islands are included. People tend to think about the Åland islands as one thing, but the main island Fasta Åland seemed a little more obscure.

It is not a full list of islands, and Malta doesn't appear at all on the map due to its size.
