Signs giving information

Signs giving information are generally rectangular (sometimes pointed at one end in the case of direction signage).

Highways in Israel are classified as national (single-digit number), inter-city (two digits), regional (three digits), or local (four digits), and route-marker signs are also colour-coded (respectively: blue, red, green, and brown) according to these classes.


National roads (Highway)

Inter-City roads (Highway)

Regional roads (Route)

Local roads (Road)

Directional Signs

Most directional signs to towns and cities are white-on-blue (motorways), white-on-green (other main roads), black-on-white (local destinations), or white-on-brown (tourist destinations: landmarks, historical sites, nature reserves, etc.).
