SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz rebrand is now coming to a vehicle near you.

The Utah Division of Motor Vehicles and Utah Jazz announced they've updated the state's Jazz license plate to add a few changes since first Jazz-themed plate was issued six years ago. The new design features the team's new all-black "J-Note" logo, replacing an older one that had a blue, yellow and green color scheme. The plate also features "Take Note" in block letters on the bottom instead of "Utah Jazz."

The alterations to the design reflect a recent rebrand that Jazz owner Ryan Smith confirmed during a tech conference last month. Much like the new license plate, the "J-Note" statue outside of Vivint Area was also painted black and white over its original blue, yellow and green scheme.

The new license plates went on sale for the first time Wednesday. Officials from both the Jazz and the DMV said there is a good cause behind the new plates. Every plate costs $46 — $17 of that covers the cost of the plate, while another $4 covers the cost of postage and handling. The remaining $25 goes toward the Utah Jazz Foundation. Per the division of motor vehicles, there's also a $25 annual contribution to the charity.

"The Utah Jazz license plate is an ideal way for fans to display their pride in our NBA franchise while making a donation to charity," said Jim Olson, president of the Utah Jazz, in a statement.

The new license plates are available through the DMV website.
