Fancy Cat

In US you can have a normal, sequential license plate, for your car. Or, at an additional fee, you can customize the message of the plate (see for example the website of the California Department of Motor Vehicle).

Today, I found a FaNCY CAT:

Proud to be an American!

Americans might have a lot of defects, but for sure they are patriotic in a way nobody else in the world is.

The flag of the United States of America consists of 13 equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton bearing 50 small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars. The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 U.S. states and the 13 stripes represent the original Thirteen Colonies that rebelled against the British crown and became the first states in the Union. Nicknames for the flag include "the Stars and Stripes" and "Old Glory". [more info]

The National Flag is almost everywhere!
