Hi, could you please tell me where is used this sign you created? Germany? Switzerland?
- I actually have no idea where it
- is used but I seem to remember seeing it in Germany (though I believe there the blue was darker). I made this because I found a request for an .svg on wikicommons.
- The symbol is used in article de:L-Übungsfahrt, translation here. — Jeff G. ツ 18:22, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
