Arizona Historical Society license plate gets new look

Posted

In time for Arizona’s monsoon season, the Arizona Historical Society has a new specialty license plate that pays homage to the state’s powerful summer storms.

Released by the Arizona Department of Transportation on Aug. 10, according to a press release, the new plate can be ordered through the AZ MVD NOW website at azmvdnow.gov.

The plate design started in July 2019 with a public poll launched on social media, the release said, describing the “Monsoon” plate as the “clear winner,” out of three design ideas presented.

The new plate features an afternoon monsoon storm moving in over the desert and the “X,” which is the Historical Society’s logo and the alchemy symbol for copper, detailed the release.

After finalizing the monsoon plate concept, the Arizona Historical Society worked with ADOT to make sure the design met law enforcement and readability standards.

“In the same way that monsoons have a powerful impact on the landscape, history has a profound and powerful impact on our lives. The Arizona Historical Society connects people through the power of Arizona’s history.

We are excited to launch this license plate and spark conversations about our history across the state," said Arizona Historical Society Board President Linda Whitaker in a prepared statement.

The new plate is available to the general public with no special requirements, the release said, noting that plates can be ordered online. The initial application fee is $25 with a $25 annual renewal fee, of which $17 goes directly to the Arizona History Society.

Sales from the plate support the Arizona Historical Society’s mission to preserve and share Arizona’s past at statewide museums, library and archives, and through educational programs, added the release.
