In early 2012, Puerto Rico started issuing auto license plates in the European style and size, which are optional for people whose cars have plate brackets to fit Euro-style:

As far as I know, no state or Canadian province has done this, but maybe it is a sign of things to come, as the world become more standardized. Currently, automakers in Europe and Asia have to retool and stamp body components for export models, specially designed to accommodate USA shaped license plates, which often requires repositioning lights, key locks, etc, on the rear of the car.

I can't stand European & Asian plates I think they're ugly as hell.

I am guessing the Euro-style plates in the US would feature a state flag and its initials right?

Most European plates have the country on the left and the state or region on the right.

I've noticed Ohio has made their license plates recently very ugly and plain.
