    Car License Plates

    Favorite thing: Somehow the Faroe's are part of Denmark, but then again they are not. Hence the cars that are licenses on the Faroe Islands have their own license plates. License plate of the Faroe Islands as issued after 1996. It has the nation code FO, the Flag of the Faroes, and a number consisting normally of two letters followed by three numbers.
