Flags Finally Allowed on UK Number Plates

It's taken eight years but at last it is legal for drivers to have flags on their number plates. In 2001, it was only the Euro flag that you could legally display however drivers were also told that the national flags would be legal and the legislation would be altered within a month. For some reason, it wasn't. So for the last eight years, anyone with a national flag had illegal plates. Although authorities had been asked to take a 'relaxed attitude' to these, it didn't stop the police stopping and fining drivers.

Now finally, we are officially allowed to display the Cross of St George, the Scottish Saltire, the Welsh Dragon and the British Union Flag on our number plates. However, anyone who has a national flag on their plates will find that they are still required to display a “GB” sticker when heading to Europe.
