WHAT are the second largest nationalities in each European country? Reddit user JimWillFixIt69 created the map below to show you just that, using flags (if you don’t know your flags, you may have trouble understanding this infographic).

Note that the data used for this map is based on the country of birth. For example, the most people living in France but not born in France are Algerian.

Some of the results may be unexpected:

  • Although we knew that Turks made up the second largest group in Germany, we were surprised to see that it was also the case in the Netherlands, Denmark, Austria, and Bulgaria.
  • Portuguese is the second largest nationality in Luxembourg.
  • Poles represent the second largest nationalities in Iceland, Ireland, Norway and Lithuania.
