On 1 Nov 2022 Aruba issued a set of four stamps titled “Landscapes of Aruba”. One of these stamps shows a nice picture of Nordwestpunt Lighthouse, also called California Lighthouse. It got the California name as a result of a ship of that name that wrecked near the lighthouse prior to the light being built in 1916.
