Luxembourg has been an independent country for the whole of the 20th century.
Old High German Lützelburg: little fort
Luxembourg is divided into three districts.
Luxembourg uses four-digit postal codes. They don't correlate well with district or canton boundaries. Note: postal codes for addresses in Luxembourg can be identified by prefixing them with "L-".
See the Communes of Luxembourg page.
The districts were subdivided into cantons (Kantone in German), which are now obsolete. At a lower level, Luxembourg is divided into municipalities (communes in French, Gemeinden in German).
The UN LOCODE page for Luxembourg lists locations in the country, some of them with their latitudes and longitudes, some with their ISO 3166-2 codes for their subdivisions. This information can be put together to approximate the territorial extent of subdivisions.
