Sorry, Canberra. Despite your social media suggestions last year, the new slogan for the Territory’s numberplates will not be “APS4 in the streets, EL1 in the sheets” or “Canberra: Wombat attack capital of Australia.”

After putting the call out for Canberrans to come up with a new numberplate slogan in September 2016,  Chief Minister Andrew Barr has today announced the shortlisted slogans, selected from 1875 submissions.

The new ACT numberplate slogan ideas to be voted on are:

  • NGUNNAWAL COUNTRY
  • AUSTRALIA’S MEETING PLACE
  • CBR – AN ACTIVE CITY
  • CBR – CITY OF DIVERSITY
  • CBR – DRIVING THE NATION
  • CBR – GREEN AND CLEAN
  • CBR – BRILLIANT POSSIBILITIES
  • CBR – FOR ALL SEASONS
  • CANBERRA – THE BUSH CAPITAL
  • CBR – AUSTRALIA’S COOL CAPITAL

Canberrans can also choose to vote and retain one current ACT numberplate:

  • CANBERRA THE NATION’S CAPITAL
  • CANBERRA – HEART OF THE NATION
  • CANBERRA – AGE FRIENDLY CITY
  • FEEL THE POWER OF CANBERRA
  • PARLIAMENT HOUSE (image)

From today until 2 February 2017, you can vote at www.yoursay.act.gov.au for one new ACT numberplate and to retain one current ACT numberplate slogan. You will need to register on yoursay.gov.au to vote.

Canberra’s choice of two numberplate slogans will be announced around Canberra Day in March.

Well, we can’t keep Bush capital, because we are not that – I saw more big old trees & bush in Delhi than we have here.
Age friendly city is just untrue.
Feel the power of Canberra is likely to get your vehicle vandalised in some places in Australia, so I guess that rules that one out. Come to think of it, that (along with the amount of “Canberra bashing” that goes on) would rule out Heart of the Nation too.
What say you?
