-- Anyway, when outsiders say Scandinavia they probably mean The Nordic Countries. That's these three [Sweden, Norway, Denmark] *plus* Finland *and* Iceland. Though you can hardly blame people for confusion when organizations like the American Scandinavia Foundation lists everyone as members. And all the Nordic Countries sometimes advertise abroad under the banner of Scandinavia anyway.

on this picture of the five countries, the rest of the countries appear as the blue phrase is being said. How do I understand it? Thank you.

    Hi,

    advertise = do advertisement
    abroad = in foreign countries
    under the banner of Scandinavia = on behalf of Scandinavia; using the name 'Scandinavia'.

    It could be about tourism, yes ("Visit Scandinavia"), but they could also advertise products (cars, furniture, etc.) and call them 'Scandinavian'.
