Directing signs on a street light pointing to different places.

Signs are nodes with integrated text that can be mounted on walls, hung on posts or in crossbars. They are used on public roads to indicate the way to access different places, such as cities, villages, stations or public buildings. They can also be used to indicate warning or danger nearby.

Types of signs

There are several kinds of signals with different purposes:

  1. Place-Name signs.
  2. Street signs.
  3. Directing signs.
  4. Warning signs.

Place-Name signs

Place-Name signs are location signs used to indicate the boundary line between two states. The Ministry of Transport defines that place-name signs for towns and villages shall be styled in white letters on green ground. If hamlets and other really small villages are administered by a larger neighbouring community, the place-name signs for the former shall be styled in black letters on white ground. Also, some streets are signaled with white signs.

Street signs

These are used to indicate the name of a street. Street signs shall be designed coherently within a town or village. Possible designs can be white letters on blue ground or black letters on white ground. Other styles are also used often in some cities or villages.

Directing signs

The directing signs are used to indicate where is located one or more places. Directing signs guiding to towns and villages shall be styled in white letters on green ground. If directing signs guide to hamlets and other really small villages that are administered by a neighbouring larger community, these signs shall be styled in black letters on white ground. Directing signs guiding to metro, underground and subway stations shall be styled in white letters on blue ground. Directing signs guiding to all other places shall be styled in black letters on white ground.
