Prior to the German reunification
of 1990, Germany was divided in two - German Democratic Republic
(commonly known as East Germany) and the Federal Republic of Germany
(commonly known as West Germany). The European Broadcasting Union
records show that only the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) participated in the Eurovision Song Contest prior to the reunification. Thus the win in 1982
(which happened before 1990) is shown as being credited to the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany). The win of 2010
happened after the reunification, and therefore is shown on the map as being a win for the reunified nation. A footnote is included on all article's that use this map to provide explanation of this factor.
