HistoryThe French enseigne indicates its essential connection with what isknown in English as a flag and in France banners not infrequently tookthe place of signs or sign boards in the Middle Ages. Signs, however, arebest known in the form of painted or carved advertisements for shops,inns, etc. They are one of various emblematic methods used from timeimmemorial for publicly calling attention to the place to which theyrefer.The ancient Egyptians and Romans were known to use signs. In ancientRome, signboards were usually made from stone or terracotta. andGreeks are known to have used signs, and many Roman examples arepreserved, among them the widely-recognized bush to indicate atavern, from which is derived the proverb "Good wine needs no bush".In some cases, such as the bush, or the three balls of pawnbrokers,certain signs became identified with certain trades and some of theselater evolved into trademarks. Other signs can be grouped according totheir various origins. Thus, at an early period the cross or other sign of areligious character was used to attract Christians, whereas the sign ofthe sun or the moon would serve the same purpose for pagans.In 1389 King Richard III of England compelled landlords to erect signsoutside their premises. The legislation stated "Whosoever shall brewale in the town with intention of selling it must hang out a sign,otherwise he shall forfeit his ale. This was in order make them easilyvisible to passing inspectors of the quality of the ale they provided(during this period, drinking water was not always good to drink and alewas the usual replacement). Later, the adaptation of the coats of armsor badges of noble families became common. These would bedescribed by the people without consideration of the language ofheraldry, and thus such signs as the Red Lion, the Green Dragon, etc.,have become familiar, especially as pub signs.
In large towns where many practiced the same trade, and especially, aswas often the case, where these congregated mainly in the same street,simple signs of a trade signs did not provide sufficient distinction. Thusa variety of devices came into existence; sometimes the trader used arebus on his own name (e.g. two cocks for the name of Cox);sometimes he adopted a figure of an animal or other object, or portraitof a well-known person, which he considered likely to attract attention.Other signs used the common association of two heterogeneousobjects, which (apart from those representing a rebus) were in somecases merely a whimsical combination, but in others arose from apopular misconception of the sign itself (e.g. the combination of the legand star may have originated in a representation of the insignia of thegarter), or from corruption in popular speech (e.g. the combinationgoat and compasses is said by some to be a corruption of Godencompasses).Whereas the use of signs was generally optional, publicans were on adifferent footing from other traders in this respect. As early as the 14thcentury there was a law in England compelling them to exhibit signs, forin 1393 the prosecution of a publican for not doing so is recorded. InFrance edicts were directed to the same end in 1567 and 1577.Since the object of sign boards was to attract the public, they wereoften of an elaborate character. Not only were the signs themselveslarge and sometimes of great artistic merit (especially in the 16th and17th centuries, when they reached their greatest vogue) but the postsor metal supports protruding from the houses over the street, fromwhich the signs were swung, were often elaborately worked, and manybeautiful examples of wrought-iron supports survive both in Englandand continental Europe.
The signs were a prominent feature of the streets of London at thisperiod. But here and in other large towns they became a danger and anuisance in the narrow ways. Already in 1669 a royal order had beendirected in France against the excessive size of sign boards and theirprojection too far over the streets. In Paris in 1761 and in London about1762-1773, laws were introduced which gradually compelled signboards to be removed or fixed flat against the wall.For the most part they only survived in connection with inns, for whichsome of the greatest artists of the time painted sign boards, usuallyrepresenting the name of the inn. With the gradual abolition of signboards, the numbering of houses began to be introduced in the early18th century in London. It had been attempted in Paris as early as1512, and had become almost universal by the close of the 18thcentury, though not enforced until 1805. Another important factor wasthat during the Middle Ages a large percentage of the population wouldhave been illiterate and so pictures were more useful than words as ameans of identifying a public house. For this reason there was often noreason to write the establishments name on the sign and inns openedwithout a formal written name—the name being derived later from theillustration on the public houses sign. In this sense, a pub sign can bethought of as an early example of visual branding.During the 19th century, some artists specialized in the painting ofsignboards, such as the Austro-Hungarian artist Demeter Laccataris.Pending this development, houses which carried on trade at night (e.g.coffee houses, brothels, etc.) had various specific arrangements oflights, and these still survive to some extent, as in the case of doctorsdispensaries and chemists shops.
Currently, with a 100+ year history, the best known sign in the world islocated at One Times Square, New York City and has been featured incountless movies and is the site for the famous New Years Eve balloon-drop ceremonies.

Statutory signageIn signage a pictogram is the image used to convey the message of thesign. In statutory signage pictograms follow a very specific set of colour,shape and sizing rules. In UK and EU signs the width of a signspictogram is set at 80% the height of the area it is printed to. In the US,a pictogram that identifies a room or space (such as the genderpictogram on a restroom signs), must follow specific rules. Otherpictograms that must comply with rules are the four "Symbols ofAccessibility" specified in the ADA Accessibility Guidelines. See thearticle *ADA Signs.For example : On an A4 Portrait UK / EU statutory sign (210 x 297 mm)using 2/3s of its area to display the pictogram 210 w x 198 H (mm) and1/3 for its text display, the pictogram would be 158.4 mm wide. (80% of198 mm).In the US, the pictogram described above would have to be locatedwithin a 6-inch-high (150 mm) clear field, with raised characters andbraille located beneath the field.For a pictogram to work it must be instantly recognizable andunderstood by all. For this to work the image must be kept consistent.In its purest form a pictogram on a sign should be understood even ifthere is no text present. Following the standard color and shape rulesincrease the likelihood of a universally understood pictogram andtherefore sign.According to the book "Discovery-Based Retail," signage falls into threegroups: decorative, adding eye-pleasing color; informational; ordirectional, providing guidance.
Use of shapeSigns have very specific shapes. These shapes on signs send messagesto the audience and form a set of rules that should be followed whendeveloping signage. The particular shapes may vary among differentparts of the world.Rectangular signs are used to portray information to an audience. Thisis found in safe condition signs, public information signs, and fireequipment signs. These signs provide information to an audience. Theytell where something is, what something is, and similar information.In contrast, a circular sign is an instruction that must be followed. Boththe mandatory and the prohibition signs provide instructions thatcannot be ignored.Finally, there is the triangle or the warning sign. This is used to conveydanger. It can also provide information but its primary purpose it toquickly tell you to be aware and careful. Stop sign used in English-speaking countries.
