    Default Red, Orange, Yellow Border Lines discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Red, Orange, Yellow Border Lines

    Usually border lines on GE are marked by yellow lines. Throughout the globe there are several examples of red border lines. Here is an example of red, yellow, and orange lines all next to each other. At this moment, I'm not sure why there are different colors to these lines. I'm guessing Yellow is for countries, red is for special territories (like the Gaza Strip or West Bank in Israel), light bluish represents different territories )Russia and Turkey are good examples), and Orange represents the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), a cease fire line created in 1974. Any more examples of this would be appreciated.

    The red line is a borderline in dispute. The connected countries are arguing over territories. Other example is the border between Egypt and Sudan. This discussion has been discussed before under Strange Red Border Line under General Discussion.
    There I have added a link showing all borderlines in dispute.

    Kashmir is another disputed border, between China, India, and Pakistan.
