Enhance your databases by referencing a complet set of countries, including flags, alpha 2/3-codes, etc.

Notion databases

Notion is a powerful tool for organizing and managing different types of information.

One of its most useful features is the ability to create databases. A database is a collection of related information that you can organize, filter, and view in different ways. By using databases in Notion, you can create a centralized hub for all your information and easily access, update, and analyze it.

Relation / rollup properties

Notion databases are highly customizable and can be enhanced with relation and rollup properties that reference other databases.

This is a powerful feature that allows you to create relationships between different types of information and consolidate data from different sources. For example, you can create a database of projects and another database of tasks, and then use relation properties to link tasks to their respective projects.

You can then use rollup properties to aggregate data from the tasks database and display it in the projects database. This makes it easy to see the progress and status of different projects in one place.

Countries Database

One database that is particularly useful as a core reference dataset for different types of databases is the Notion Countries Database, built from the ISO 3166 standard.

The Notion Countries Database includes information on all countries, including their flags/icons, alpha 2 codes, alpha 3 codes, and numeric codes. By using this database as a core reference dataset, you can easily link information from different databases to specific countries and get a comprehensive overview of data related to different countries.
