What is a sign?
A sign is any device, fixture, placard or structure that uses any color, form, graphic, illumination, symbol or writing to advertise, announce the purpose of or identify the purpose of a person or entity, or to communicate information of any kind to the public.


(Well, that's the technical definition. In other words, a sign is something you put outside to tell people something, with or without the use of words!)
