British Honduras - The old name for Belize. The country was renamed in 1973 and gained independence in 1981. Prior to that, British Honduras was part of the old colonial empire, so stamps from the period feature the monarchs of Great Britain. Belize is geographically part of the mainland of central america, but culturally it's more Caribbean and thinks of itself as an island.
