LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Governor Pete Ricketts and First Lady Susanne Shore unveiled Nebraska’s new license plate design Tuesday.

Nebraska's new license plate is based on a well-known mosaic in the State Capitol building — the "Genius of Creative Energy."

Shore said there are several limitations placed on the design of the general license plate.

“I need everyone to understand that there are legislatively required mandates that affect this general plate that don’t affect the specialty plates out there,” Shore said.

The mosaic is at the threshold of the foyer at the capitol building and depicts “lightnings ruling the four elements,” according to the International Hildreth Meière Association.

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts unveiled the state’s new license plate design Tuesday.

"In his right hand, the Genius brandishes a lightning bolt. Grasping the reins of a powerful unseen force with his left hand, he is propelled across the lightning-charged sky," according to Hildreth Meière.

Ricketts and Shore were joined by Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles Director Rhonda Lahm, Capitol Administrator Bob Ripley and designer Drew Davies — the owner of Oxide Design Co.
