ATLANTA -- Three finalists have been unveiled for Georgia's new license plate, each featuring a peach.

The three plate designs were selected from more than 500 entries submitted by the public.

A panel of Georgia college and university art professors narrowed the selection to eight. An online public vote chose the final three designs.

Gov. Nathan Deal will announce the winner Friday at a state Capitol news conference.

A sticker featuring the logo ''In God We Trust'' may be purchased for an additional dollar at county tag offices. The optional sticker was featured on each of the proposed plates on the state Department of Revenue website Wednesday but was removed Thursday.

The state will begin issuing the plate next year.
