The Hungarian motorway symbol has always been blue though.

Ah you meant that way. In France all motorway destinations are blue. Exit signs on motorways are either green or white, depending on the type road the destinations posted will lead you to.

Directional signage on all roads in Belgium is blue, isn't it? Just like it's always (well, usually) green here. We don't use the chopsticks symbol or any other at all, by the way.

no, it is not. take a street view tour, near some minor exit. at state road signs indicating entrance to motorway will be on green.

I meant, the basic color, sort of the background color of the signs, is blue no matter what kind of road you're on. And I was thinking not of signs pointing to a motorway but signs on a motorway or other road telling you what you can do at the next junction. Which isn't true in France or the UK. You can still have a green panel within the blue sign to announce an upcoming motorway.

Yes, all signs leading to motorways are green in Belgium. But on motorways itself they're all blue, and they remain blue. Same on all other roads in Belgium, and directions not leading to motorways, which are blue as well. All signs in the Netherlands are blue without exceptions.

Not really. Signs leading to motorways only are fully green in Belgium.

Blue = motorways

Green = Route Nationale (National roads)

White = Route Departementale (Regional and local roads)

What about Italy? The superstrade have a symbol similar to that of a motorway in the "blue" countries. Also the roads look pretty much like motorways in many countries...

In other words, a question arises about how to define a motorway in countries that use a language other than English. In many cases this is pretty clear, but not in all.

The Superstrada is just a dual carriageway with motorway characteristics. But it's not a motorway, so the signs are blue. Funny really, the Autovia's in Spain are not motorways, but the signs are blue anyway... (Blue is motorway colour in Spain)

Strada extraurbana principale, max speed limit 110 (vs 130 on motorways).

When talking about Spanish motorways, usually booth autopistas and autovias are included and they have the same max speed limit (120).

But still the superstrade have the same "motorway" sign.

On the other hand the colour doesn't always tell - for instance in Finland and Sweden also expressways (moottoriliikennetiet, motortrafikvägar) have the same green as motorways - just without the "motorway" sign but with a "car" sign instead. Despite being usually single carriage roads.

Same as in Switzerland. Worse: they also carry a motorway sign, even though there's only one lane in each direction.

No, Poland has blue motorway entrance sign, and directional signs are also blue.

But the so called "expressways" which are de facto motorways have green directional signs (and the same design as on any local road - small font etc.), just to confuse drivers
