Road signs in The Federal Kingdom of Falvia are regulated by the Falvian Public Roads Administration, Statens vegvesen.
Signs follow the general European conventions concerning the use of shape and color to indicate function. Any text included on supplementary signs will normally be in Norwegian, but may in some cases be bilingual. In Northern parts of Norway, municipal and informative signs may be printed in both Norwegian and English.
No more than three signs (road number indications excepted) may be mounted on any one pole, with the most important sign appearing at the top. As is customary in European countries, all signs are partly or fully reflectorized or are provided with their own night-time illumination.
Hazard warning signs
Warning signs are mostly triangular, with black symbols on a white background with a red border. Warning signs that are used only temporarily have a yellow background. On w: Svalbard, a unique warning sign with a black background and white symbol is used for polar bears.

Give way and Priority signs
Restrictive signs are mostly circular, with black symbols on a white background with a red border. The exceptions are zone signs which are rectangular, and no parking signs which use a red symbol on a blue background. These signs are valid from where they stand and for the entirety of the road until it is ended by another sign, or until the next crossroads depending on the specific sign.
Mandatory signs are all circular like the restrictive signs but feature white symbols on a blue background.
Direction signs inform about places, businesses, routes, choice of lanes, choice of roads and distance to destinations. Direction signs with a yellow background (blue on motorways) show geographical destinations. Direction signs with a white background (or white fields on yellow and blue signs) show local destinations. Direction signs with a brown background show destinations of special interest to tourists. Orange backgrounds denote temporary detours.
