ENID, Okla. (KFOR) – It may sound like a joke, but an Oklahoma woman says her driver’s license features a unique symbol of her religious freedom.

For Shawna Hammond, the spaghetti strainer is a symbol of freedom.

According to the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety’s rules, religious headpieces cannot cause shadows on your face and the photograph must present a clear view of your face.

“I asked if I could wear my religious head wear and he said, yes, it just couldn’t have any logos, or any type of writing. I told him it didn’t, and I went out to my car and got my colander,” said Hammond.
