Uganda Quidditch

Africa

Currently the premier Quidditch-playing nation in Africa, WEB LINKUganda's national team recently participated in the Quidditch World Cup with six members of their most prominent team - the Proudsticks, based in Patonga (QA8). Their national team also defeated Wales in recent World Cup competition (GF5).

Uganda is a small, mostly tropical country in eastern Africa, with borders that include the Democratic Republic of Congo and Lake Victoria. It was once under British rule but has now been independent for forty years.

Ukraine Magical Creatures

Europe

The second-largest country that was once part of the Soviet Union (Russia is larger), WEB LINKUkraine is an eastern European country that is now a democracy. Though the country is mostly flat, it does have a few mountains on its western edge. Presumably these mountains are the home of the Ukranian Ironbelly dragon, the largest breed of dragon in the world (FB).

underground stations Building Muggles

Underground Station, London
London - England - United Kingdom

The underground railway system in London - what in the U.S. would be referred to as a subway - is commonly referred to as the Underground, or occasionally the "tube." Though the names of the stations are never specified, Harry has taken the Underground three times:

United Kingdom

Europe

Also referred to as Great Britain or Britain, the WEB LINKUnited Kingdom is the official country which encompasses four smaller regions in the British Isles:

These, of course, are where the entirety of the Harry Potter series takes place. Ireland, though also located in the British Isles, is not part of the United Kingdom.

United States Quidditch Magical Creatures

North America

A country located in the center of North America and spanning the continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific, the WEB LINKUnited States is home to the towns of Fitchburg, Salem, and Sweetwater, and is also the natural habitat of the clabbert and the doxy. We also know that Quidditch is not particularly popular there thanks to Quodpot - a game invented by Abraham Peasegood which is played almost exclusively in the U.S. (QA8).

Upper Barnton Magical Creatures Famous Wizard Cards

Cheshire - England - United Kingdom

Upper Barnton seems to just be a historical name; today no such city exists in Britain, though there is a Barnton near Liverpool which may or may not be the same town. Regardless, in the 1400s Upper Barnton was the home of a famous nasty giant named Hengist who was killed by Gifford Ollerton (fw).

Upper Flagley

Yorkshire - England - United Kingdom

Though a Muggle village, Upper Flagley has long been home to a large number of wizarding families as well, much like Ottery St. Catchpole and Godric's Hollow (DH16). Harry, Ron, and Hermione tried searching here briefly for one of Voldemort's Horcruxes, but with no success (DH22). Upper Flagley is described as being in Yorkshire, (DH16), but like the other wizarding villages, is fictitious.
