Personally - why do we have to have an expensive fancy artsy-fartsy license plate? I'd prefer a plain boring one with the just the letters and numbers and no graphics. No one is offended, no one left out, no area preferred and probably some dough saved. Oh, well....

I think it is something like this...
The Georgia Peach/Peach State comes from when the state use to be the state leader in peach production (it is 3rd now)--like 1930s-esque. More importantly, during the heydey, a variety of peaches produced in Georgia became nationally known for their taste and texture. I think this is decently-close to the reason for Peach State/Georgia Peach. Someone may prove me wrong...

Moreover...I still hear to-day that peaches produced in Georgia supposedly taste better...or are just better in general...

The ABC article said that this will be relatively cheap to produce and will save the state a lot of money.



I do like the idea of a plain tag with no graphics.


My idea--peach background with green letters and numbers.

Wonderful, just wonderful. The worst one. Seriously, did the person who designed that plate think that we lived in Kansas, with those rolling grasslands?

Who are the people who'd vote for such a plate that is geographically inaccurate, because "it's got purdy colors"?

I don't think there is a need for a skyline--I think the tranquility of Georgia and Atlanta is what needs to be promoted.
How about the FORESTS of Georgia that cover over 60% of the land, not grassland/farmland which cover maybe 15-20%?

I agree. Plain, solid color plates with alternating letters/numbers are often more attractive.

Well maybe next time instead of 2 peaches, there will be an image of a couple of nuts. I could get behind that.

I would like that too--I would actually like it more.


Remember, my opinion is that this license plate was just the best of the seven (or however many) offered/proposed.


My preference:

1. Plain/no graphics--with peach background and green letters/numbers.
then

2. Forests
then

3. Tranquility Scene
