The children in this sign, outside the Botanical Gardens in Córdoba, seem to have put on weight compared with the signs of twenty years ago: Beware of schoolchildren I and Beware of schoolchildren II

Controversial sign in Stamford Hill

stamford-hill-uk-1

The artist who put up this and other road signs in Stamford Hill (London) reportedly thought he was celebrating local life. However, it got reported to the police as a hate crime. Maybe he was unaware of the significance of the red triangle, which makes the sign read “Beware of Orthodox Jews”. It’s a good job he didn’t use a red circle which would have read “Orthodox Jews forbidden”. Perhaps putting the figure on a blue square would have been better.

His series of signs remind me of Mythogeography.

More about the artist here and here.

Not sure what is being banned here, but that is probably a picture of a boat, and it is saying don’t moor here. There is a mooring ring very close to the sign.
