State license plates changing
Louisiana license plates are changing. For the next two years, tags will commemorate Louisiana's 200th anniversary as a state.
New plates will be available January 3 through 2012.
Louisiana was admitted to the United States in 1812.
The plates will feature a brown pelican on the left, standing in front of a sunburst and the state. A green bayou scene with the word "Louisiana" in red script is at the top, and the bottom has
the words "200 Years" bracketed by red and white flags, one saying 1812, the other 2012.
