Yep, I saw that. But all other signs of that type with France in top of it I saw included a 130 km/h limit with a motorway symbol.

Do they have a FRANCE sign with the EU stars? Would love to see more photos of that border. Where are the checks?

Are there border controls if you fly from France or another Schengen country to French Guayana?

Yes, there are. The overseas areas of France, the Netherlands, Denmark and Norway do not belong to the Schengen area.

There is interesting thing about another tripont located not too far North to this one showed by DSzumaher.

Just check the street names near the place where three borders join together (particulary pay attention to the one in NL):

The "border" between the French-speaking and German-speaking parts of Belgium (within the province of Liège, and thus within the Walloon Region) ends at that same point as well, as far as I can tell from http://www.ngi.be/FR/FR1-9.shtm (not from the link, the actual book).

In fact, the easternmost bend of that Route des Trois Bornes probably ought to have a German name, although the contour lines on the map don't make it clear that it crosses the line (which shows up in the atlas as the municipal boundary between French-speaking Plombières to the west and German-speaking Kelmis to the east.

Here an explanation, made with Google Earth:

Fourcorners.PNG:

The yellow lines are the actual borders: In the Northwest the Netherlands, in the Southwest Belgium and in the East Germany.

The pink line is the former Western border of Neutral-Moresnet. Today, it's still the adminsitrative line between Plombières (French speaking part) and Kelmis (German speaking part). The green line is the former eastern border of Neutral-Moresnet. The area East of it belonged to Germany/Prussia before 1918.

So, east oft the pink öine, German is the official language, while west of it it's French. To make it more complicated, Plombières is a German-speaking comunity, even it has always been in the Netherlands and later in Belgium. But it does not make part of the Deutschsprachige Gemeinschaft, the German-speaking community of Belgium. However, German has a kind of an official status in Plombières too, like other comunes in Belgium with language minorities.

Neutral-Moresnet had the form of a triangle, with the tip on the actual tripoint and the base on the Liège-Aachen road (today N 3 in Belgium).

I've found a nice old picture of (what I think it is) Romania / Hungary border crossing:
