Also proposed for İstanbul but İstanbul's seem ugly,

I can tell you that Portugal, Spain, France and Italy (and likely Andorra, Monaco and San Marino) do not use the red+amber before green.
And just a few days after saying that, I've come across a traffic light in Spain that does use a red+amber phase before green

It was one of those portable traffic lights for roadwork sites. Here's the video: https://vid.me/wmZl#0m20s

Well. I do not find Wikipedia very accurate here. There is not such thing as an European standard. The rules and arrangement principles vary across the countries.

For example, all the Nordic countries belong to the 'some other Central European countries' referred to by the statement 'In Germany, the Czech Republic and some other Central European countries, a combination of red and orange lights is used just before the switch back to green.'

The Wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traffi..._and_operation displays rather a long lists of 'red-and-amber' countries: Austria, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom.

I just returned from Turkey and there I couldn't discover any system or standard.
Some traffic lights have red+amber before green but some don't. Also the light before red is not everywhere the same. Some traffic lights have the common way to announce red. A few seconds amber before red. Others blink green, then very short solid amber before green.
I did like the timer on some traffic lights showing how much time is left before green or red.

there is no nationwide standard.
There can be differences between municipalities and also General Directorate of Highways.

Timers are very popular here.
