Currently, Tennessee license plates feature a green mountainscape. The new design features a blue background and the state’s tri-star emblem. The design also includes the phrases “TNvacation.com,” “Volunteer State” and “Tennessee.” Residents also have the option to add the phrase “In God We Trust.”
"As Tennessee celebrates 225 years of statehood, it's a perfect time to redesign our license plate and feature the Tri-Star that represents each of our state's unique grand divisions," Lee said in a press release.
State statute requires that plates be updated at least every eight years. The design was introduced by Bredesen and was virtually unchanged by Gov. Bill Haslam.
