The German noun 'Kolonie' translates to 'colony' in English. It refers to a group of people who settle in a foreign land and establish a community that is connected to their home country.

In the context of history, the term 'Kolonie' often refers to the overseas territories that European powers colonized during the Age of Exploration and colonialism. These colonies were established for various reasons, including economic exploitation, political control, and religious missions.

Today, the concept of 'Kolonie' can also be applied to other types of settlements or communities. For example, there are agricultural colonies where groups of farmers live and work together, as well as cultural colonies where expatriates maintain strong ties with their native culture while living abroad.
