Stop sign


This is a standard American Stop Sign, if interested, you can read about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_sign
wikipedia states:
"Stop sign used in English-speaking countries, as well as in the European Union"
A question for DCPBloggers who have a primary language other than English -
Do your stop signs look like this?
What is your language, and how do you say Stop?
With the help of an online translater I've come up with these translations of "stop".
French - arrêter
German - anhalten
Portugese - parar
Russian - остановитесь
Spanish - parar

What a great idea you have here! I'm curious to see what comes up as CDPBers answer your question around the world.

"Altered" signs would be an interesting theme. Illegal (to do the deed), but I've seen some really creative graffiti on road signs.

In the various countries I have visited all the stop signs were red octagons. From what I remember, though, it seems they didn't all have the English word "STOP".
