Encamp, Andorra

You may see it as a simple street sign, but you are really seeing nation-building in action. Andorra is a Catalan nation, the world's only nació indeepndent català. The Catalan word for street.is carrer, and one of the most revered Catalan saints is the martyred Santa Eulalia. As for the colorful quadrilaterial: it's Encamp's coat of arms. [2005]
