I guess, the territories on the list should have developed some sort of autonomous or even self-styled identity. Is it the case for Akrotiri and Dhekelia? I would be eager to hear it from any locals!
Guad. Mart. Fr.G. Réu. and May.'s journey from overseas outposts to fully integrated administrative regions does not cancel the very straightforward fact they were subjected to independence movements, or at least stances.
Mayotte became an outermost EU region as late as 2014, but I am pretty sure if you take a walk in Mamoudzou you still can perceive a bit of "otherness" than you were sipping you café in Paris. Just suggesting, uh.
This cannot apply to any of the aforementioned, Hawaii, Acores/Mad., Canary, or Svalbard. What could have developed into a partly or fully, different character than the motherlands due to colonial past, there simply did not happen, at least during decolonization in XX Century.
Hawaii only possible exception, which I could include in the quiz after more thorough evaluation.
Again, do not be so hideous when replying. Try and being more polite. Bye
