In another message Clive Hohberger reported about color convention
used in Japan: red for men, blue for women. But in Russia the colors
are opposite. When you see a happy couple with a swaddled newborn
baby you can instanly determine if the baby is a boy or a girl by the
color of the ribbon: blue for boys, pink for gilrs.

Now, let's kill this hugely off-topic thread about signs used for,
mmm..., public conveniences.
