State flag recycled

The design for the new Nevada commemorative license plate to mark the state's planned 150th birthday has been released. Like the plans for the year, it is relatively low key—a modified version of the state flag.

The 125th plate showed a miner sitting on a hillside holding a pick and gazing into the distance. The centennial plate was a strip reading “Nevada Centennial” flanked by the dates 1864 and 1964 that drivers were required to place across the bottom of their regular annual plates.
