I agree with you about North Carolina's tag. It needed replacing like 20 years ago.

I do like the new Texas and Alabama tags though contrary to what some people say.

As for our new one, yeah, it stinks. Not the worst out of the bunch though. I guess it will be an excuse for me to finally switch my "Chatham" sticker to "Gwinnett"

The backdrop looks like Kansas. Seriously, it reminds me of the area between Salina, KS & Topeka, KS. An area with rolling farmland. West of Salina, it's a bit too flat.

In some ways, it could represent some agricultural areas of Kentucky, but even that is a stretch, given the lack of trees. Perhaps parts of west-central Illinois, too.

The peaches on the left look like pumpkins.

The tree doesn't look like a peach tree. Seriously, even around spring time, peach trees have more greenery than this when flowering. It's also oddly shaped.

The only area of the state where one could see what appeared to be endless farming land, such as what this tag portrays, might be the area just to the west/northwest of Albany, or that vicinity of the state. Even places in Georgia's peach country, such as around Fort Valley, don't look like that.

Most of the state is covered with a thick blanket a trees, yet you'd never know that with this plate.

It's kind of funny how states that are only around 30% forested, such as Oregon are known for their trees, yet a state that's nearly 70% forested is supposed to be known for "farms". Odd.

I like the Colorado plates- simple but makes a point.
The orange New York plates make no since to me and would really clash with the color of my car.
For those who really hate the new Georgia design, you can always pay a little more and get a custom plate.....

Honestly, I think the latest Illinois plates are pretty hideous.

I just read this:
"Unlike Georgia’s current plates, the new plate will not have raised numbers or letters resulting in a less expensive production process. According to a press release from Gov. Deal’s office, Georgia taxpayers will not incur any added expense for production of the new license plates and will also have the option of selecting a plain tag"
