February is known for being the month of love. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, many Texans are rushing around placing their last-minute orders for flowers and chocolates for that particular person in their lives. Some Texans are turning to express their love on their bumper. They are making a more personal statement for all to see.
The “heart” is the most beloved Texas symbol chosen when ordering personalized plates from My Plates, the official vendor for Texas license plates.
Over the last year, 6,721 Texans entered a long-term relationship with the Heart, making it Texas’ favorite symbol! In the second spot was the Texas Silhouette with 5,844 orders, and coming in third, recording 3,363 orders, was the star. There are five symbols/special characters available in Texas, with the Dash and the Period rounding out the selection.

The way Texans showed their hearts on their bumpers instead of their sleeves varied in many ways. They declared soulmates, adored family and pets, showed a deep bond with their cars, were head-over-heels for their sport or college, loved their horses, life, state, country, faith, and even had a deep crush on their hunting.
If you want to make a love connection, the heart symbol (and other four special characters) is allowed on all Texas personalized license plates and will take up one entire character space. Later this month, My Plates will also be releasing the “Love Heart” license plate, featuring a red heart on a black background designed plate.
So, if you’d like to put more “heart” and soul on your bumper, Texas has you covered at My Plates.
