Great Britain and the United Kingdom

Great British Venn Diagram

Huge findings! I haven’t realised that there is subtle difference between Great Britain and the United Kingdom. I know Republic of Ireland is not part of the UK. But I didn’t know that Northern Ireland is not part of Great Britain! A friend of mine also then see the slightly misleading name given to the Olympic team, called “Team GB”. I wonder if this has caused outrage in the past among the Northern Irish.What was confusing for me before was that the International Irish Rugby team is made up of both sides of Irish players. Anyway, this is a great Euler diagram that explains the relationships among the British Isles PERFECTLY! 🙂
