(sth) Did you know that Luxembourg shares a 148-kilometres-border with Belgium? That four princes of Luxembourg wore the crown of the Holy Roman Empire? That the Echternach hopping procession is a UNESCO cultural heritage? That life expectancy at birth in the Grand Duchy is 80.5  for men and 85 years for women? Or that three out of 13 EU Commission Presidents so far have been Luxembourgers?

If you didn't, now you do. And there's lots more you can discover by taking a look at 14 new 'infographics' published by Luxembourg's statistical office STATEC and the country's Press and Information Service SIP.

The infographics, first published in 2015, have been updated every year since and feature the new Luxembourg nation branding slogan “LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN” and the iconic red-blue “x”.

For those that just can't get enough of the infographics when seeing them on the screen, they can be ordered for free in all official languages of Luxembourg and in English.
