God Save The United States - Virginia License Plate

http://sweetvirginia.org/license-plate/

One of the many lessons honey bees showcase is the idea of β€œout of many, one” – in other words, β€œE pluribus unumβ€œ, the original motto of the United States.

For we Virginians who want to show our patriotism while emphasizing the unity that has made us the strong nation we are today, this license plate is an opportunity to do that.🐝
