|Tlaxcala undated passenger issue (1998 issue). The background of this plate shows the shillouette of La Malinche mountain. The state seal appears in the top left and "Mexico" is screened at the top.
|Tlaxcala undated passenger issue (2002 issue). Graphic issue featuring a very light graphic cross-section of the state, with a church, bullring, mountainline, and Xicotencatl, the ancient native king of the region. The slogan "Cuna de la Nacion" translates to "Cradle of the Nation." The state seal is seen at bottom right.
|Tlaxcala undated passenger issue (2006 issue). This issue was released in April, 2006 and also features a graphic of La Malinche, an extinct volcano, in the background. This element was carried over from the last two issues. Seen at either side are images of the ancient bird-man painting from Cacaxtla, Tlaxcala. The state seal is shown at the bottom right.
|Tlaxcala undated passenger issue (2012 issue). This issue from Tlaxcala was introduced in 2012 and again featured a simple mountain outline at bottom, a favorite motif for the state.
|Tlaxcala undated passenger issue (2015 issue). The 2015 graphic issue features the image of a portion of one of the murals in the Government Palace showing scenes from the history of Mexico and Tlaxcala. This image makes for a busy composition for the plate, which, while an interesting and unique look, makes it somewhat difficult to read at a distance.
|Tlaxcala undated passenger issue (2018 issue). New national standards were established by Mexico's Secretary for Communications and Transport starting in 2017, resulting in a flood of new issues. These standards dictate the placement of graphic elements on the plates, mostly restricted now to the top and bottom of the plate. Tlaxcala's previous issue was probably the inspiration for these standards, so the state was forced to simplify this time out, limiting the mural depiction to a smaller band at the top.
