Registration Plates – Maryland

The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration unveiled the new standard-issue registration plates recently in Glen Burnie, and motorists seem to either love them or hate them.

The new registration plate features Baltimore’s Fort McHenry in a red, white and blue color scheme. It will replace the standard black-and-white tag – which has been in use for about 20 years – on all cars, trucks, motorcycles, and disability and multipurpose vehicles until June 2015.

The design is a part of a statewide campaign to promote awareness of the 200-year anniversary of the War of 1812, in which the battle that inspired the national anthem was famously fought in Baltimore.
