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 corps. 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.
