You can show your support for various causes in many different ways, whether it is political views or social views. Expression of your opinion is fundamental to a free and democratic society.

Now, South Carolina residents have an additional option when it comes to making a statement with their official state license plates: showing their support for Israel.

The Jewish Press reports that the vanity plate costs $7 and “those special license plates will have the message: ‘South Carolina Stands With Israel.’ The graphic on the plate will have intertwined flags of Israel and South Carolina.”

It will be interesting to find who will be those ones to purchase these plates, but according to the Pew Forum, Jews make up just one percent of South Carolina’s population.

The Jewish Virtual Library estimated 13,570 Jewish residents in South Carolina in 2012. Evangelical Christians, meanwhile—staunch supporters of Israel—are the largest religious presence in the state, comprising a whopping 45 percent of South Carolina’s population.
