European number plates’ size

0 123

European car registration plates have been standardised in 1957 for the convenience of the manufacturers.

While there is a variety on non-standard local sizes and designs, there are two typical sizes in the European Union: 520x110 mm (20.5”x 4.3”) or 520x120 mm (20.5”x 4.7”).

A characteristic feature of EU number plates is the Euroband: a blue stripe with the EU symbol (a circle made up of 12 yellow stars) and the country code. Euroband is not mandatory in Great Britain, Denmark and Finland. A number of countries from outside of the EU modelled their registration plates symbols on Euroband; these countries include: Turkey, Norway, Ukraine, Israel.
