MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Showing off your Gulf Coast pride just got a little easier with the new One Coast specialty tags. The vanity tags are now available in county tax collector offices across the Magnolia State.
The tag features the One Coast logo in yellow and dark teal, which is set over an outline of the Mississippi coast. Behind the tag numbers, there is the outline of a coastal bird in gray and a yellow setting sun. The Visit Mississippi Gulf Coast logo sits in yellow at the bottom of the dark teal design.
"It is very exciting to see Mississippi Gulf Coast pride hit the roads," said Milton Segarra with Visit Mississippi Gulf Coast. "We thank everyone for their support of our beautiful region."
The initiative was sponsored by Visit Mississippi Gulf Coast, an organization that promotes tourism in the area. Many people pre-ordered the One Coast tag, paying in advance in order to meet the 300 tag goal set by the state tax collector's office.
Visit Mississippi Gulf Coast is an organization that promotes South Mississippi as a tourism and convention destination. With a worldwide focus, the group is always focused on ways to increase the number of visitors to the coast. You can find more information about Visit Mississippi Gulf Coast on its Facebook page.
