2017 France Lighthouse Stamp

Cherbourg-en-Cotentin is commemorated by this 0.73€ stamp issued by La Poste on 10 July 2017. The light on the end of the Jetée du Homet is noted by the red arrow in the right-center of the stamp. While not actually a lighthouse, it is still a lighted aid to navigation. Cherbourg is located on the north coast of France and has a fine deep water harbor.

2016 France Lighthouse Stamp

On 11 July 2016 La Poste issued a stamp commemorating the fish of the Mediterranean. In the background can be seen the hills surrounding the city of Marseille. Near the waterline, the white structure is Fort Saint-Jean Lighthouse, also known as Tour du Fanal Lighthouse. This is an ancient lighthouse which has been extinguished since the mid 19th century and was originally built as a watch tower.
