    For thousands of years, Aruba was peacefully inhabited by AmerIndians who had migrated from South America. This era ended when a Spanish explorer arrived in 1499. The Indians were taken to work in neighboring Hispaniola, ultimately returning as laborers on ranches. Aruba was under Spanish rule until 1634, then taken over by the Dutch in whose hands it remained, except for a short hiatus during the Napoleonic Wars. The gold rush began in 1826 followed by phosphate mining in 1879—both ending with World War I.

    At the beginning of the 20th century, one-third of the island was covered with aloe plantations. Oil refining then dominated the economy for about 80 years. Today, Aruba has become a world-class vacation destination. The flag and national anthem are celebrated every year on March 18, the day in 1948 that Holland accepted Aruba’s right to autonomous status within the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
