Flags, symbols and identifiers
You can display one of the following flags with identifying letters on the left-hand side of the number plate:

Union flag (also known as the Union Jack)
Cross of St George
Cross of St Andrew - also known as the Saltire
Red Dragon of Wales
The letters, or national identifiers, you can have are:

GREAT BRITAIN, Great Britain or GB
UNITED KINGDOM, United Kingdom or UK
CYMRU, Cymru, CYM or Cym
ENGLAND, England, ENG, Eng
SCOTLAND, Scotland, SCO or Sco
WALES or Wales
The flag must be above the identifier. You cannot have the flag or letters on the number plate margin, and neither can be more than 50 millimetres wide.

Driving outside the UK
You may need a GB sticker or a UK sticker to drive outside the UK. Which sticker you need depends on when and where you’re driving.

You do not need a GB or UK sticker to drive in Ireland, no matter when you are driving.

Up until 27 September 2021
You will need to display a GB sticker clearly on the rear of your vehicle if your number plate has any of the following:

a Euro symbol
a national flag of England, Scotland or Wales
numbers and letters only - no flag or identifier
If your number plate includes the GB identifier with the Union flag (also known as the Union Jack), you do not need a GB sticker.

If you’re in Spain, Cyprus or Malta, you must display a GB sticker no matter what is on your number plate.

If you’re still travelling abroad after 27 September, you’ll need to cover or remove the GB sticker and replace it with a UK sticker.

On or after 28 September 2021
You will need to display a UK sticker clearly on the rear of your vehicle if your number plate has any of the following:

a GB identifier with the Union flag (also known as the Union Jack)
a Euro symbol
a national flag of England, Scotland or Wales
numbers and letters only - no flag or identifier
If your number plate includes the UK identifier with the Union flag (also known as the Union Jack), you do not need a UK sticker.

If you’re in Spain, Cyprus or Malta, you must display a UK sticker no matter what is on your number plate.

If you have a GB sticker, cover or remove it.
