Another 2020 Uruguay Lighthouse Stamp

On 13 May 2020, Correo Uruguayo issued a stamp titled “Coronavirus National Plan”. On the national coat of arms at the upper right of the stamp is a barely visible depiction of a stylized lighthouse.

Thanks to Jaap, again, for bringing this one to our attention.

2020 Uruguay Lighthouse Stamp

On 27 Feb 2020, Correo Uruguayo issued a single-stamp souvenir sheet commemorating the 180th anniversary of the first photograph in Uruguay. The stamp shows the Montevideo Cathedral Metropolitana. In 1862 a lighthouse was established in the shorter south tower of the cathedral and operated until 1910 when it was de-activated due to the difficulty of detecting it from sea in the background lights of the city. Thanks to Jaap for again finding a lighthouse stamp for us.
