I have seen "CC" tags on a number of cars in different countries.
These are white tags on the grille with the letters "CC" in red.

I think they have something to do with the civil service or diplomatic

I want to know what this stands for and why people display them.

A very simple answer will do.

Dear spurious,

"CC" stands for "Corps Consulaire" and distinguishes cars of members
of a Consular Corps. These signs are fixed to the car so that the
driver's special status as a diplomat is known to the forces of
control who may not detain him in any way.
