I have not known it had been from 1998 But you are seemingly right.

At that time Hungary used green signs for highways, which was later replaced with blue. Also "utdij/toll" is now "matrica/vignette".

There are some such "inconsistencies" on the ensemble of German motorway destination signs.

In this case, probably, Brüssel is so close to Brussel/Bruxelles that non-Germanophones are simply expected to understand it, while Lüttich is by far not as close to Liège/Luik ...

Already quoted in one of these treads, but that one is a good example in this one.
Sign in France. Spanish style. One pole, three languages. French (Espagne), Spanish (Pamplona, Urdax) and Basque (Iruña, Urdazubi; Ainhoa is Basque but is used in any language else).

Not far, you can find these:

Let's solve this for the Germans


(Just like this great Belgian way to solve the Luxemburg/Luxembourg-problem.)

That remembers me this example.

"Matarraña / Matarranya" is one of the eastern shires of Aragon. It bounds at the same time with Catalonia and the region of Valencia.

Although Spanish is the only official language there, due to be close to Catalonia and the region of Valencia, almost all citizens are bilingual.

And their official name is also bilingual "Matarraña / Matarraña". Its capital is Valderrobres, located here

Their logo is this one:



Where you can see hoy they have used a "Ñ" and "NY" at the same time.

It isn't exactly Russian in Kirkenes - it's just Norwegian written in cyrillic alphabets.

Montjoie (French for the German place Monschau) is not on the Belgian signs any more these days (except maybe on an old and forgotten sign). There is a Hotel Montjoie in Monschau however

Incredible how ugly those Belgian signs are...

What about the Cyrillic in Norway, by the way? How many Russians are living up there?

Wikipedia mention that 10% of Kirkenes' population are Russians. I think that's quite old numbers though as there have been an increase in recent years due to more liberal visa requirements, but I couldn't find any concrete numbers other than that. Many Russians from the border-region also works, do their shopping and use other services in Kirkenes. Many public buildings and stores have also adopted Cyrillic signs as a result.

I've driven right alongside the Belarusian border on my way to Vilnius, LT but I've never seen signs like these before.

In South Africa signs are generally in English, although in Afrikaans speaking areas they alternate between English and Afrikaans. You never see both languages on the same sign, and I have not seen this system anywhere else. Also you see our old, and new fonts in the same photo in the first photo
