Can I have an EU flag on my UK number plate?

Short answer... No. Well, sort of...

Before Brexit, or January 2021, it was perfectly legal for UK cars to have EU flags on their registrations, as we were part of the EU.

But from January 2021, this will not be the case because of the UK leaving the European Union.

If you have a registration from before January 2021, then you don't need to worry about anything, as the rule only applies to plates manufactured AFTER December 31st, 2020.

However, so you're not feeling left out, you can swap your EU flagged number plates here. However, it's NOT mandatory unless they were purchased after December 31st 2020.

Another element to consider is the GB sticker. From December 31st, 2020, UK-registered cars will have to display a GB sticker when driving in any EU country. This rule does not apply for driving in Ireland.
