I love the Catalan nation so much.I think is one of my favourite small nations along with Irish, New Zealanders and Finns.

They don't have their own state tho, and that makes it difficult for the cohesion of the different regions split into 3 or 4 countries. And yet they have preserve their culture and identity where others have largely lost it .


Perpinya and Alghero are two of the most beautiful cities I have visited. My bf has family in Valencia, and I have spent there a few holidays too, but believe it or not, I have never been in Barcelona yet xD

In fact, none of the pics posted so far are part of Spain, lol. Some people's obsession leads to epic fails like these, easily forgetting that ethnic Catalans still spread over four independent countries. But I guess that as long as the thread is hijacked, who cares about accuracy?


Ibex , do you want a independent Catalonia or a independent paises catalans?. I dont think that Valencia or Balearic Islands are very regionalist.

I'm all for the right of people to decide. I understand the Catalan Countries as one ethnic nation, but it does not mean that they should necessarily form one single country. Specially the Land of Valencia, a dual territory from its very inception. So it is up to Catalans from Valencia and the Balearic to decide if they'd like to join with Catalonians in a common political project. Would I like it? Yes. Particularly for the preservation of the ethnicity in those territories. But what I really care for right now is the Principality.

La Catalogne est un très beau pays! J'espère que mal grès les efforts des républicains français et des nationalistes espagnol, la Catalogne gardera sa culture et pourra enfin affirmer son peuple! Mais bon, avec les Espagnols c'est pas facile, sans compter que sans la Catalogne, l'Espagne baisserais d'un niveau! Mais cela dit... ils n'ont pas à imposer leur langue et leur culture aux Catalans ou aux Basques, non ?

Se las cargaron todas por la vía rapida y a tomar por culo. Francia es el país jacobino por excelencia donde se ha tratado siempre de eliminar cualquier tipo de particularidad del Estado y hacer todo girar en torno a París

Actually, since Catalan used to be just a Langue D'Oc dialect, you can include in your list the whole Southern France, who used to speak the same language until 19th century, when rapid industrialization and mass immigration brought it to near extinction. Now Catalan, the last remaining dialect with a vigurous usage, is struggling to survive on a long term. Less than half of Catalans in Spain speak it habitually.

Catalan is likely an Ausbau language (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abstand_language) within the Aquitano-Pyrenean group of Occitan, Southern Languedocian being its closest relative, but the separation was already quite distinct as early as the 12th century. From then on, the vigour and autonomy of Catalan has been much stronger than that of any Occitan variety, and they grew up apart in spite of some efforts of getting closer. Today, Occitan remains the closest language to Catalan, but they can't be really considered the same language any more.


Now Catalan, the last remaining dialect with a vigurous usage, is struggling to survive on a long term. Less than half of Catalans in Spain speak it habitually.

Hmm, not really. Well, the use of Catalan is vigorous and is the only language of a stateless nation in the world that is clearly increasing its number of speakers. There are almost as many L2 speakers of it as native speakers. Of the more than 11 million people living in the Catalan-speaking area, about 95% understand it and more than 75% can speak it. Catalan is not really a 'minority language', not at a European scale, but a 'minorized language', which is something different.

I'm personally not as worried about the quantity of speakers as about the quality of them. One of the facts of not being a sovereign state is that the influence of the major language affects the quality of the native one. What means that Catalan in France has got very Frenchified, Catalan in Italy has got very Italianized and Catalan in Spain is getting gradually Castilianized.

Almost 100% of nationals in Andorra speak Catalan, which is the only official language in Andorra. What has happened in Andorra in recent decades is that more than half of the population is non-national, mainly Spaniards and Portuguese, but also French, Brits and other Europeans. It'll all depend on the ability of Andorrans to integrate them.

It is in Catalonia, but you're right, it is not ethnically Catalan. Their language, btw, is now the third official language in all of Catalonia, at least in theory.

Andorra is far from being Catalan, apart that it has never been part of Catalonia, is just an example of what would happen if Catalonia was a state, the official language is not a guarentee of anything. Most people in Andorra speak spanish. The same can be said for the Basque country.

04-27-2011, 02:28 PM
For me it's a degradated and specially deculturized (by the culture of money) part of Catalonia (or, at least, of the infamous Paisos Catalans), other thing is that they never make part of the counties integrated in Aragon crown and finally in Spain: territories nowadays called (Southern) Catalonia. In fact, I would not hesitate to conquer them (I doubt Vatican or Sarko would move a single finger to help them) to avoid further damage on our public finances, by means of tax hiding...for not to talk about the aggresive driving of many Andorran drivers (including cheaters from Lérida province) on our roads. In fact, I dont know so much buzz about Gibraltar (at least they have the most powerful colonial power of all times supporting them) and so little about Andorra, which does not mean a shit for nobody.

Oh, yeah, I forgot that Catalonia only exists since 1978. In that case, it's never been part of it, true.

Sure. A tiny territory of 80,000 people is totally comparable to one of more than 7 million.


the official language is not a guarentee of anything. Most people in Andorra speak spanish.

Filling a country with immigrants doesn't change the character of the country until the native population has been eradicated. Now, if Andorrans are that stupid to let it happen, that's a different issue.

And I'd say soon Portuguese will be more spoken than Spanish there.

Neither it has been part of the Crown of Aragon, nor the Principality of Catalonia, nothing of that. The only thing in common with today Catalonia was the Marca Hispánica, but then also other territories that you consider now Spanish.

No. It's a punctual recent phenomenon in more than 1,000 years of history, and they're mostly 1st generation. Stricter policies of integration, that's all Andorra needs.

Political bullshit. Andorra is nothing but a series of valleys which naturally belonged to the County of Urgell. It's only because of the constant struggle with the County of Foix that it was 'neither for you nor for me'. But Andorra is completely North-Western Catalan.

Come on, during most if it's history there were only 4 shepherds and 4 cows, that's all nobody gave a shit, it has been recently that Andorra is considered something more than a mere pyrennean village, and more when catalan was made official. Well, according to statistics the national Andorrans are only 37% of the population, and that considering is a country where is very difficult to obtain nationality.

I agree with Iberia. When foreigners are the majority like in Andorra, the integration is imposible, and probably in the next 50 years , local andorrans will integrate to foreigners , and they will speak even portuguese( I supose that they know actually speaking castilian), and will forget their own language. I think that it is similar to Aran valley where very few people speak aranese and the majority speak castilian. The oficiality of a language doesnt serve if foreigners are majority.

Comte Arnau
04-27-2011, 11:16 PM
Let's see...

Geographically? They're Catalans.
Ethnolinguistically? 99% of the nationals are Catalan. More than 20% of the "foreign" population is Catalan too.
Officially? The only language used for all purposes is Catalan. Domestically and internationally.
Culturally? They're Catalan. Folklore, cuisine...
Legally? Their institutions are based on the Catalan Law.
Religiously? The whole country is part of the Catalan Diocese of Urgell.
Historically? They were in origin part of the County of Urgell, what is the same as saying Western Catalonia, since Old Catalonia was born mainly from the union of Urgell (West Catalonia) with Barcelona (East Catalonia).
Politically? They've always been ruled by the Bishop of the Catalan Diocese of Urgell and the Heirs of the County of Foix, originally Occitan and very related to Catalonia (the flag of Foix was the 4 Catalan bars too).
Socially? Their relationship with this side of the Pyrenees is obvious --not with the northern French part. Most Andorrans go to work/study in Catalonia rather than to any other surrounding territory, and that's for a reason.

So saying they're not Catalan is, well, 'pissing outside the flowerpot', as we say in Catalan. I don't think more comments are needed on this.

National Andorrans are still more than Spaniards, according to last year's statistics. Immigration reached its top in the late 80's, and it has gradually decreased since then.

Catalan is spoken by almost 100% of the national Andorrans. It is the usual language for almost 60% of the population and the native language for almost 40%. The belief that Spanish is the most used language in Andorra is simply denied by the statistic studies, probably due to the fact that most Catalan-speaking Andorrans can address the Spanish-speaking ones and Spanish tourists in their language. Besides, a good deal of the 'Spanish' immigrants in Andorra are Catalan speakers from 'Spanish' Catalonia. Still, it's true that Spanish is the second most spoken language in the country and the first among the foreign ones. As I said, what I care for is for the national population, not the foreigners living in it. If the core of the nation keeps its customs, it's the descendants of foreigners who get integrated, not the other way round. This said, I repeat I think some policies should be stricter.

Yeah, you forgot a very important thing : is that they don't consider themselves Catalan. And altough the official language is catalan, it is only spoken by one third of the population.

They don't consider themselves Catalonian, that is, from the political territory called Catalonia. But they're ethnically Catalan, they cannot consider themselves anything else unless they're lying themselves. Calling themselves Andorrans is just like someone from Minorca saying he's Minorcan or someone from Tortosa saying he's from the Terres de l'Ebre, using political instead of ethnic terms for identification. Like Austrians saying they're not Germans.


And altough the official language is catalan, it is only spoken by one third of the population.

I've already commented on this and written the last statistics.

Little Emperor? Lol. They can keep on being an independent tiny country forever and ever. The name 'Catalan Countries' was precisely coined as a recognition of the independence and peculiarity of each Catalan-speaking territory.

As for their close relationship with Castile and Paris... nah, they're too far. The only connection comes via the language, TVs and tourism.
