Andy Hoppe from autokennzeichen.info submitted this photo from 2004. He explains: "I have seen this Belgian plate lately... It is similar to the plates used for foreign personnel, but instead of the month and year (inside the ring of yellow stars) it only says "EU - UE". It is possible that this plate is a new version of the old plates with the blue letters "EUR" (embossed) inside an embossed circle of stars. Since the plates don't have an expiry date, I suppose it is not a private car of an EU employee, but a vehicle from an EU facility in Brussels."

Ben, who works for the EU in Brussel, comments: "According to the EU Intranet, officials have three choices for their number plate: 1. Belgian normal series plate (solution which was not chosen by most in the old times, but which is now chosen by the majority). 2. "EUR" plate (solution which was the favourite one of EU officials in the old times but which is now hardly chosen by anyone because of the supposed hostility of people to EU officials). 3. "International" plate (with blue letters as submitted by A. Hoppe), I supposed this possibility has been given to EU officials in order to allow them to have a distinctive plate, but without the inconvenience of having a big undiscreet "EUR" sign on it."

Patrick submitted these photos of his own and his wife's cars. At first sight the plates look quite ordinary, but they are in fact personalised. ANN is the name of Patrick's wife. 612 stands for 6th December, his wife's birthday.

ANN-612 is in the newer style, ANN-789 the older. The main difference is the red seal above the hyphen.
