The Itinerànnia network’s signals are yellow. You have to follow the yellow rectangles. At crossroads where several of the network’s paths meet, specific vertical signals will help you to get your bearings. At the crossroad between a network path and a non-network path, there will not usually be any vertical sign. Each pole will indicate the basic location information relating to it.
