Why are you reporting this puzzle?

West Quoddy Head, in Quoddy Head State Park, Lubec, Maine, is the easternmost point of the contiguous United States. Since 1808, there has been a lighthouse there to guide ships through the Quoddy Narrows. The current one, with distinctive red-and-white stripes, was built in 1858, and is an active aid to navigation

A lighthouse at West Passamaquoddy Head, Maine, was authorized by Congress in 1806. The light station was finished on April 21, 1808, at a cost of $5,000 (equivalent to $78,000 in 2018). In 1820, Congress authorized the first fog signal at the station, a 500-pound (230 kg) bell, for a cost of $1,000 (equivalent to $18,000 in 2018). The former keeper's house now serves as a museum and visitor's center.

In 1990, the U.S. Postal Service issued a 25 cent stamp featuring the West Quoddy Head Light

I recon the stripes make it more easily visible from out at sea, Jill. Or attractive to visitors. Or Both☺☺ Thanks for the comment.
