Map shows Germany über alles

Published on 28 March 2015 at 16:06

A map of Europe where each country displays the flag of the other country that is the largest source of imports shows clearly that Germany is the champion to the vast majority of European countries, with 16 out of 28 EU members having it as their biggest trade parter – the number two being Russia. Its is curious noting that tiny Netherlands are the biggest imports source for Germany and reciprocally - the only pair in the EU.

The author, a Reddit user nicknamed Amiantedeluxe, used statistics from The Observatory of Economic Complexity, statistiques-mondiales.com and Wikipedia to make the map.
