These signs are based upon diagrams from the Road Signs and Pavement Markings Manual issued by the Department of Public Works and Highways of the Republic of the Philippines.

They have been created in collaboration with Fry1989, TagaSanPedroAko and Photo07.

  • 00 Green (21, 167, 81) - Direction Guidance Signs
  • 00 Red (195, 25, 38) - Regulation, Prohibition, and Warning Signs

Sign Shapes:

  • Philippines road sign R1-1.svg Octagon - Stop sign
  • Philippines road sign R1-2.svg Upside-down Equilateral Triangle - Give way sign
  • Philippines road sign R3-1.svg Circle - Regulatory signs (Circular signs may be placed on rectangular plates with text for additional information.)

Sign Fonts:

  • Arial font.svg is the most common font used on road signs.
  • Highway Gothic font.svg or FHWA Standard Alphabets are usually used on directional signs.
  • Clearview font.svg is common on several new directional signs and most newer road signs, especially regulatory type signs. Font is allowed on negative-contrast signs, as opposed to the FHWA which only allows use of the font on positive-contrast signs and requires interim approval.
