    Well then, you should erase Finland out of your excel Finland has only 6% Swedish speakers, and some 90% of them speak as good Finnish than Swedish. And most of them has no Swedish roots, perhaps some 20% of them have though.

    I'm referring to Saami people, yes, and Kvens and Finns.

    Norway doesn't have many Finnish immigrants I believe. But there are Kvens in Northern part of Norway who have lived there for a very long time. Also the Saami minority is the biggest in Norway and stretches quite south. Sweden has a massive amount of Finnish immigrats, about half a million as far as I know + their children. And in Northern parts of Sweden there are a very old Finnish minority, even though during the last centuries they are largely assimilated to Swedes.

    Sure, but some people in Finland, today speaking Finnish as mother tongue, and regarded as ethnic Finns, have partial Germanic heritage historically. This is especially true in the western coastal areas. Thus my assertion would still be valid, IMO.

    SHE's referring to Saami people, yes, and Kvens and Finns.
    This does not really count... these groups are not regarded as ethnic Norwegians.

    Any Norwegians wish to clarify?

    I'm not Norwegian but as far as I know Kvens live in Northern Norway from the beginning of 18th century. I guess it's long enough.

    Post Re: Countries That Are Predominantly Germanic

    How can South Africa be predominately Germanic? I believe non-whites makeup about 85 to 90 percent of the population there.

    I agree it would be more at place in the 'honourable mention' category. According to the CIA World Factbook, only 9.6% of the population there is White.

    Yes, you're right. Though, we must remember that south africa is an advanced country (different from any other country of the black continent) ; rich, advanced and wealthy south africa is the WHITE south africa ; there is a rapid emigration of whites from the country : until some years ago, the % was 13,4, while now is 9,6%. When ALL whites will leave the country, south africa will return gradually to the atavic standard of any other confinant nation : underdevelopment, ethnic wars, aids etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc..................................... ............

    True; I think it should be specified as "White South Africa" - as there is a distinct White community in South Africa which is of predominantly Germanic heritage. I believe it is said to be over 80% Dutch-German, with more Germanic ancestry listed such as Norwegian, Swedish and Danish. The largest non-Germanic contributor to this population is French (which is in itself partially Germanic), at around 8% of the pop.

    Above is talking about the Afrikaans-speaking section of the population. There is an English-speaking section too, which is predominantly of English, Irish and Scottish heritage.
