Nebraska’s new license plate design unveiled
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Governor Pete Ricketts and First Lady Susanne Shore unveiled Nebraska’s new license plate design Tuesday.
The plate was designed by Drew Davies—owner of Oxide Design Co. The design is inspired by a mosaic on the floor of the State Capitol building called “the Genius of Creative Energy.” It depicts a Roman character harnessing earth, air, wind and fire.
“I love the idea of this plate representing Nebraska and Nebraskan’s as they travel out of state and other various states,” Davies said. “Having it spark conversations about where the imagery came from and what it means and encouraging people to visit the state capitol and learn more about the creative energy of Nebraskans.”
Shore said there are several limitations placed on the design of the general license plate.
“I need everyone to understand that there are legislatively required mandates that affect this general plate that don’t affect the specialty plates out there,” Shore said.
A new license plate is designed and implemented every six years, as is required by Nebraska law. Production of the plates is underway, with distribution to begin in January 2023. Owners of vehicles with a standard issue license plate will receive new plates from their county treasurer in the month the vehicle registration expires. This currently amounts to approximately 1.3 million vehicles statewide.
