    بلد is any country, whether it's your native country or not.
    وطن is someone's homeland or native country.
    أرض means land or ground.
    Example: I'm Egyptian so Egypt for me is وطن but I live in Kuwait for example, so Kuwait for me is بلد which I live in.


    الأرض: means the land , land , any land.
    الوطن: means home, your own home is your own country not your town nor your village.
    بلد: can express your country, your town or your village
    They are all similar and can express the same meaning, But, we use (الوطن) when we are abroad. e.g. I miss my home [only with your country] (وطني).
    We use land to express the possessing of a piece of land.
    We use (البلد) to express the place where I came from, country, town, village.
    I wish you got the difference.
