Postage stamps and postal history of Aruba
Aruba has produced its own stamps since 1 January 1986, when it was granted internal autonomy within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It had previously been part of the Netherlands Antilles. The official language is Dutch.
Early days 
In 1892 the Governor of Aruba was given the title of Director of Post and tasked with the responsibility of delivering the mail. The first official post office was in Plaza Daniel Leo but moved to J.E. Irausquin plein # 9 in 1958.
First stamps 
The first issue was to celebrate the New Constitution and included a 25 cent stamp displaying Aruba's position on a map of the Caribbean.
