Full Answer

The sign indicating a roundabout ahead is a dark yellow sign with three black arrows on it, pointing tip to tail in a counter clockwise circle. This sign is usually square shaped and hung from a corner. Stop signs are bright red with "Stop" printed in white on them. They are octagonal in shape. Like the roundabout sign, the sign indicating a stop light ahead is yellow, square and hung from one of the square's corners. A representation of a stop light is in the center of this sign. The sign indicating the beginning of a divided highway is the same color and shape and has two black arrows on it. The arrows point opposite directions, and at the top of the sign they flow around a black divider.

The sign indicating a flagger ahead is orange, square and hung from one corner. This sign has a black figure of a person holding a flag up and the other arm raised at the elbow. A yellow square sign with a black plus sign in the center indicates a four-way intersection ahead.
