Netherlands Antilles Quiz

The Netherlands Antilles was an autonomous Caribbean country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, consisting of two groups of islands. Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao (ABC Islands), and Sint Eustatius, Saba and Sint Maarten (SSS Islands).

Aruba seceded in 1986 as a separate country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and the rest of the Netherlands Antilles was dissolved on 10 October 2010, resulting in two new constituent countries, Curaçao and Sint Maarten, with the other islands joining the Netherlands as “special municipalities”.
