UNPF = United Nations Protection Force in Ex-Yugoslavia ( March 1992 - December 1995)

The second plate with the T was used on a trailer

Later issue in former Yugoslavia for different missions as UNCRO, UNMOP and UNTAES. The first plate is an overpainted version of the first issues (PF was overpainted in white). Somewhat later plates with UN were in use. The example you can see here was used on a trailer (T=Trailer).

Three more special issues from this time in Ex-Yugoslavia:

very low number; missions command (?)          DFC=Deputy Force Commander

SRSG=Special Representative of the Secretary General


WEU = Western European Union
This is a plate from a Police Observer Mission of the WEU in Mostar in Bosnia-Herzegovina (1994)

The Western European Union is is a consultation forum of nine EU countries (Belgium, Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Spain and Portugal). The nine stars on the plate symbolize these nine countries. Since 1995 Greece is also a member of WEU.


UNHCR = United Nations High Commisioner for Refugees

This plate was also used in Ex-Yugoslavia. In December 1995 the UN mission were superseded by NATO mission IFOR = “Implementation Forces” which was a multi-national mission from 16 NATO countries and 17 non-NATO countries.

 After IFOR in December 1996 the mission was renamed to SFOR = Stabilization Forces. The seal you can see is embossed.

Another SFOR plate. This time without seal.

From December 2005 the European Union took over the mission now called EUFOR = European Union Forces:

Beside EUFOR there are still vehicles of NATO in Bosnia. They carry NATO plates:

another NATO mission is acting in Kosovo named KFOR = Kosovo Forces

Beside the NATO also the United Nations have their own Kosovo mission named UNMIK = UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo


First they used UNMIK on their plates and later only UN.

In the Kosovo there is also the European Union with its mission EULEX for the rule of law in Kosovo. Here you can see a pair of these rare plates:


The members of the EU missions in Kosovo carry the following plates on their private vehicles:

Beside these organisations also the OSCE is working in Kosovo

OSCE MK = Mission in Kosovo

This plate comes from UNOMIG = United Nations Observer Mission in Georgia (since August 1993)




UNFICYP = United Nations Peace-Keeping Force in Cyprus.

The first plate was used in the early years of the mission. The plate with UNF is currently in use. The meaning of the plate UNP is possibly an early UN plate for private use of the members of a mission, like it is still in use in the Middle East.



MINURSO = United Missions for the Referendum in Western Sahara (since September 1991)
The plate is from Morocco CD series


MINURSO = United Missions for the Referendum in Western Sahara (since September 1991)

UNTSO = United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (since June 1948)
