This one is used on our national roads at every entry into my county.

Quite appropiate since here are the most famous and popular mountain range in Roumania.

Looks a dangerous construction. Better not to hit into it.

There is a pair of Bela Palanka municipality signs (entry and exit) between Bežište and Resnik, but I haven't found a photo.

Entry into Babušnica municipality on the road 223 (Bela Palanka-Babušnica) near the village of Resnik.
The name of the municipality is written only in Serbian, but "Welcome" is written in both Serbian ("Добродошли", the later part blurred out) and English.

Sign for Carinthia in Slovenia. This is probably the only such sign in Slovenia. It's ambiguous though, because this is where the Carinthia Statistical Region starts, but it doesn't coincide with the traditional region. These people will probably tell you they're Styrians (although the sign apparently doesn't bother them that much).

Canton of Solothurn welcome sign on A1 motorway, coming from Canton of Aargau. The cantonal border runs along the river Aare.

I like the one where you enter Świętokrzyskie. Don't have a picture myself, but Google Maps did :-)

Regional border between Castilla y León and La Rioja, Spain, along the former C-113 (current BU-825/LR-113)

Location: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.1391...7i13312!8i6656

Sometimes, signs marking regional borders in Spain get vandalised. That includes anything between writing over them and shooting at them.

The region of Castilla y León is made up of 9 provinces, 6 in "Castilla" and the other 3 in "León". This one is Burgos, in Castilla.

Reciprocally, in León, they usually erase the part that says "Castilla".

La Rioja is made up of only one province, so there's no need to specify.

Comunidad de La Rioja by J GM, en Flickr

This is the former border stone. One of the three sides says "Burgos":

Other side says "Logroño", which is the former name of the province. In the past, certain provinces were named after the capital. Notice that someone has written "RIOJA", which is the current name of the province/region.

There has been a merger between the Southern and Northern Trøndelag counties in Norway. The new county, simply called Trøndelag, is the second largest in area in Norway (39 thousand square km) and a population of a bit less than 1/2 million. To put these numbers in a continental perspective, this is a slightly smaller area than Denmark at less than tenth of the population. The new county has the coat-of-arms of the old northern county. the St. Olav's cross. St. Olav (sometimes called St. Olaf) is Norway's patron saint and was killed in a battle in the former northern county, but buried in the Nidaros cathedral in Trondheim, the dominant city of the region located in the formed southern county (Sør-Trøndelag). The ax in the coat-of-arms of the Sør-Trøndelag is btw alsa symbol of St. Olaf as he received his fatal wound by an ax. The same ax is held by a lion in the coat-of-arms of Norway. Signs in both Norwegian and South Sami language are set up. Although the county names appear similar, the Sami languages are not Indo-European and hence not related to Norwegian (but to Finnish, Estonioan, Hungarian, and even more remotely Korean ;-) )
