    I have been in England many times and i have never seen many blonde people..

    This map is misleading.















    Only Robert Plant- Led Zeppelin - and Roger Daltrey - Who - .... are more and less blonde...less than 10%

    26 = 24 Black or dark brown hair + 2 medium blonde

    The map speaks about light hair, not blonde. Light hair includes the lighter shades of brown.

    It is not possible that in Germany (espacially North germany ) there are less blonde ( or light brown) people than in east england.
    And in my opinion the wrong color in the map is that of England.

    This is probable one of the matters which I have wondered since the time my memory starts. Yes, I have compared Swedes, Finnish Swedes and Finns all the time .

    I have been couple of times in other Nordic countrics (except Iceland) and Baltic countries (except Lithuania..will done that finally now summer 2018).

    I don't have any specific data ....just a feelings...and for me this question partly goes....which hair colour (how dark brown) is still calculated as a light one?

    I know that Lithuania and Latvia who are Slavic tend to be the blondest. It is why that I don't go by true Nordics are mostly blond because Baltic Slavics also have a very high blond rate. I read an article last week that claimed Norwegian Vikings really had more red hair like Eric the Red by looking at real genetics maps and settlements of Vikings, which introduced more red-hair genes in those regions like Russia, the Rhineland, and parts of Ireland. Movies romanticized Viking with the pure blonds. I have red-heads in my family as well as white blonds so it varies over the generations. Vikings may have been more red than blond.

    Well..sorry, but my personal image is that Estonians have more blondes than Latvians. And I assume it will be same with Lithuanians as well. Sometimes I even wonder which % of blonde Latvians are actually descendants of Finno Ugric Livonians (atleast same Latvians have said that they were discribed more lighter than Baltic Latvians in their old writings).

    But again...light hair maps like above...showing that high %.... those are far from blondes. To get that high number...anywhere in the world...one has to calculated atleast sand brown hair people as light haired (how dark brown...no idea). Doing it like that the differencies in % are automatically very small between Finland, 3 Baltic states and Scandinavia. The same would become much much more interest if only for example flaxen-haired blondes (like me) would be calculated. That's what I meant.

    I believe that Blondism is perhaps strongest with N genes, if not I Y-DNA. This is the truest Nordic reservoir of blood, not any type of Indo-European, which all seem to be variations on a theme, influenced elsewhere by Basques, Caucasians and Dravidians, but otherwise having a central foundation. Therefore, Germanic and Celtic seem Nordic by relation with the Uralics, whilst Greco-Romans would be Mediterranean by their relation to the Basques. Similarly, among Satem-speakers, Christian Balto-Slavs, Albanians and Armenians would have to be tied to Caucasians, with non-Christian Indo-Iranians to Dravidians.

    You are the one misleading us by posting pictures of brown-haired British people only. They are not all English by the way. Someone else could do the same with German, Dutch, Scandinavian people. The fact of the matter is that 25% of the United Kingdom people are naturally blond, and in England it is higher!

    Germans are by no means exclusively blond! A good pic there

    It is a fact that Germany is far from being a uniformly blond-haired country. Due to the geographic location, northern parts of Germany show a relatively high blondism while the southern parts are nowhere close. While in England, there is no great differences in blondism between regions. Though overall the majority of Germans approximately 55% - 60% have light hair (blond, brown, red hair shades) , let's not confuse light hair with blond hair.
    Frequency of blond hair:
    Germany
    Schleswig-Holstein = 46%
    Northern Germany = 43%
    Thuringia = 36%
    Northern Brandenburg and Berlin areas = 33%
    Swabia = 32%
    Northern Rhineland and Bavaria = 30%
    Hesse = 22%
    Ruhr = 21%
    Saxony Free State = 20%
    Rhineland Palatinate = 19%
    Baden, Frankish Bavaria, Saarland and Lusatia = 15%
    England
    Northern England = 37%
    Eastern England = 36.7%
    South East England = 35.8%
    The Humber and Yorkshire = 34.3%
    East Midlands = 33.2%
    South West England = 32.1%
    West Midlands = 31.2%
