Wales has vanished!

Maps of the EU are sometimes drawn with non-members removed (as on the euro coin). Eurostat produced a recent map, someone forgot Wales. Oh dear.

Regretable, though I can understand it as the organisation of the UK must be a bit of a mystery to many people who aren't from the UK. The person looking at their list of countries must have known about Scotland and England being part of the UK, but did not know that the same applied to Wales. Therefore when they looked for Wales on their list and came up short, they assumed it was outside the EU.

These things happen, though someone will be walking round with a very red face today.
