Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.

Vallentuna Municipality is a Swedish municipality in Stockholm County, in central Sweden. Of the municipal population, 24,000 live in the town Vallentuna. The town has an ancient history and Vallentuna is an Old Swedish word. It later came to form the Vallentuna Hundred. The current municipality was established as a result of the municipal reform in 1971. Its coat of arms depicts an eagle, a broad axe and two stars.
