Spotted a different number plate in the parking lot. Newish car. With a not EU – at least, without the EU bit on it – number plate.
Can’t recall the crest exactly, but the shield in the crest looked like it was held up by storks, perhaps pelicans. More likely storks. And the motto was “ouranouma” or “oranama” or some such.
No detail as to which country it came from. But the plate number was 223 B or some such.
So, it’s got to be from a small place, a short run of numbers.
Note this is in the Algarve. So, small place which is not EU which someone might drive a car from.
Hmm. And I’m running out of ideas. Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco and San Marino are out, they don’t use plates – so far as Mr. Google tells me – like that at all.
I just can’t think of anywhere other than those four in Western Europe which is non-EU and yet which will issue its own plates. Ceuta, Melilla? Basic Spanish plates, no?
A Sovereign military order? Bit of a stretch.
Not Arab speaking as no squiggles, which rules out most of North Africa.
Given that someone here knows most about anything, who has an idea here?
