This is the Places unit. I think "cologne" was put here by mistake instead of "colony".

perhaps it slipped in from the German module: the name of the city, K├Âln, is derived from Latin colonia; it means colony, and in English is spelled Cologne.

Cologne is actually la colonia. Also, la colonia is the colony.
