Aruba

Since the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles on October 10, 2010, the island of Aruba forms the Kingdom of the Netherlands together with Sint Maarten, Curaçao and the "Netherlands in Europe".

According to Abbreviationfinder website, the islands of Bonaire, Sint Estatius and Saba in the Caribbean belong to the "Netherlands in Europe" - as so-called "special municipalities".

Geographically, Aruba belongs to the "Lesser Antilles and is - along with Bonaire and Curaçao - one of the three so-called ABC islands.
