NEW YORK (AP) - New York has a new license plate that features several of the state's famous landmarks.

The Department of Motor Vehicles announced the design Friday based on the results of a statewide survey.

The winning plate showcases iconic settings like the Statue of Liberty, Niagara Falls and the Montauk Lighthouse.

It also features the state motto "Excelsior," a Latin word meaning "ever upward," and a blue-and-yellow color scheme on a white background.

DMV Commissioner Mark Schroeder says some 325,000 New Yorkers participated in the survey. About half of them selected the winning design over four other options.

He said the design represents "what the Empire State is all about- our diversity, our unparalleled architecture and natural beauty."

The new license plate costs $25 and will be available to motorists in April.
