In the Netherlands dialects have all but vanished. People in norhern and eastern parts of the country don't speak German as their native language....

:icontotentanz0:
They don't speak German. They speak Dutch Low Saxon: [link]

:iconwalterkarsemeijer:
Only older people still speak those dialects these days. How do you explain Northern Germany having the same colours as the eastern Netherlands? Dutch saxon dialects sound very different from the German versions.

Dutch Low Saxon is part of the West Low German group: [link] so it has the same color as other dialects of northern Germany. Being spoken in the Netherlands, a strong Dutch influence over lexicon and orthography is not surprising.

:iconwalterkarsemeijer:
The same page also includes the fact that onlt 15% of the adults and 1% of the children use the dialect in their common conversations with friends and family in those regions. Therfore I would include the Netherlands and Flanders the same colour, since the majority in all regions there speak Dutch as their first language. Flemish and Dutch people can have normal conversations without any trouble understanding each other. I think a few words may differ depending on what region you're in at the most.

I think he just made the native dialects, of course dialects are dieing,
so he could also make all of Germany in the same colour, since the majority
speaks High-German.

Anyway Dutch is just a lower franconian and lower saxonian german dialect,
having the status of an own language, because it has an own state.
