It looks pretty familiar to me:

an image of Europe, with Spain highlighted in red, France in orange, Germany in yellow, Poland in green, Ukraine in blue, the Black Sea in indigo, and Turkey in violet

    $\begingroup$ @matt_rule hey, nothing wrong with an easy puzzle every once in a while. I also happen to be pretty geographically oriented so it probably jumped out at me quicker than the average person $\endgroup$

Let's look at this another way...

The given image, upside down

Recognise any of these shapes? How about if you look on...

Now you can see that we're looking at outlines of Spain (in red), France (orange), Germany (yellow), Poland (green), Ukraine (blue), the Black Sea (indigo), and Turkey (violet).
