EU regulation number plates include
 
the country of regulation, like above so no seperate country sticker is necessary.
Vehicles registered outside the EU with number plates which do not include the country of registration are required to have a seperate country of registration disc.
Apologies for the sideways photo 🙄

You now need a UK sticker. GB sticker is gone.

Though not legal, I have an NI sticker and a IRL on display. It as yet has not been questioned by any officialdom but just in case I have a UK one in the glove box. I do occasionally get asked what’s the NI one.

The technical answer is, I think, that you should have either a small sticker on the left of your number plates showing the letters UK with a union flag, or a large white oval with U.K. printed stuck on the rear of the vehicle. This is an overriding requirement for visiting Spain irrespective of you displaying the small number plate sticker.

I simply display both an ireland and N.I. small stickers on the rear bumper and also the N.I. Version of the number plate sticker which has the EU stars around it. Has to be some benefit from being screwed by both governments, although technically there is no approved N.I. Sticker. You could use a Scotland version with saltire or a Welsh version with dragon if you don’t want a union flag displayed.

Never had an issue, the only people who get confused are the Dutch who see the yellow plate but don’t see the difference between an NL and an NI. Often wonder what the French or Spanish police would make of an N.I registered van driven by a an Irish passport holder with a U.K. driving licence.

That’s the way the eu is, the first 2 letters or first and last letter, I don’t want to change plates with any sort of identification marks but no problem with any temporary sticker, if that makes sense
