Iso 3166-2:ge

ISO 3166-2:GE is the entry for codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Georgia, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 2 autonomous republics, 1 city, and 9 regions. The city Tbilisi is the capital of the country and has special status equal to the regions.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is GE, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Georgia. The second part is two letters.
