Map caption is incorrect[edit]

the caption under the map of the Eastern hemisphere at 1200 ad is incorrect. The 12th century runs from 1101AD to 1200AD. Since the title of the map indicates the year 1200, it is actually the last year of the 12th century, nit the beginning. One might argue that it is the dawn of the 13th century, but not the 12th.

the flag list is confusing[edit]

The description for the flag list seems very confused. "The following countries and territories lie outside Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania yet are entirely, mostly, or partially within the Western Hemisphere:" I think changing "yet" to "and" will mostly fix it, but it's still a weird way to frame it?

Or the better fix is maybe to keep the "yet" and change "Western Hemisphere" to "Eastern Hemisphere"? A series of editors seems to have got each other quite literally disoriented in that end section? But I think I can maybe turn that weird list into something meaningful. Irtapil (talk) 10:45, 10 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]


The population of the Western Hemisphere is still lower than one billion. Drsruli (talk) 22:11, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
