(1) French Guiana, an overseas department of France,
(2) Guyana, known as British Guiana from 1831 until 1966, after the colonies of Berbice, Essequibo, and Demerara, taken from the Netherlands in 1814, were merged into a single colony,
(3) Suriname, until 1814 a part of Dutch Guiana, together with Berbice, Essequibo and Demerara." [The Guianas. Wikipedia]
