Passenger friendly signs are displayed in International Seaports and Airports. In 1993, the ICAO & IMO Councils approved the joint publication of the third edition of Doc 9430, Which details the symbols to be used in all Seaports and Airports. Text only boards in English can not be understood by non English speaking passengers. Hence, Signs or Symbols are displayed prominently so that it can be easily understood.

Sometimes English Text below each sign is provided. But as per the regulations, text below sign is to be avoided where ever possible.
