NATO Members


Founded in 1949, the NATO coalition continues to serve in a deterrence role today.


The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was established on April 4, 1949 during the post-World War 2 period and amidst a backdrop of a new rising threat in the East, the Soviet Union. Of the thirty countries currently making up the coalition, twenty-seven reside in Europe and three of the thirty are nuclear powers (United States, France, Britain). Only the United States is considered a Super Power in today's definition.

NATO Member states as of March 2022 are: Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Founding members are marked below with an 'F' graphic on a yellow block background. Founding members are Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
