map of country codes

Reading a old magazine before dumping it I noticed a article on "Country Codes of the Worl". They pointed out to a nice map which includes all the country codes. I just want to share it so if people are ever looking for such a map to put on the wall of a office they might find this link to the original website useful.

At the end of every URL and email address is a top-level domain (TLD). Although .com is the world’s most popular TLD, it is far from alone. There are more than 260 TLDs in use around the world, most of which are country code top-level domains (ccTLDs). The Country Codes of the World map includes 245 country codes, which encompasses all United Nations countries as well as numerous islands and territories. Each two-digit code is aligned over the country it represents and is color coded with the legend below for quick and easy reference.
