I've also seen them in yellow and other styles with the actual flag and was just wondering how all that works. What do I need to look for?

EDIT: Here's a picture of exactly what I have in mind right now.
Yes white on the front and yellow on the back for some reason.

The stars are the 'EU' flag (we aren't allowed our own flag )

I've always wondered why European license plates are so much longer and thinner than the USA license plates.

Here's a Texas one like the one I have



Every license plate in the USA are those dimension, btw

I dunno, they look better to me. It won't cover up my lower grille any more. But this tag has room for 9 characters. In Alabama I know the first two numbers are for the County the car is registered in. I don't know what the other 5 are for exactly, besides just being there...
