Looking at its Men at Work signs we noticed a clear influence of South-America. That is not true for the roadsigns at hand. The first sign may show a weak resemblance with a sign from Bolivia, but there is no doubt about the rest: old world.

The sign in the middle is a specimen of the Mediterranean children. Find out more about the characteristics and the countries who fell for its mediocrity on the page about Malta.

The last sign reminds me of Morocco. The children have very long necks in both here and there. Is that perhaps because of classrooms packed with pupils where the black board is hardly visible above the heads?
Notice also that the girl is the leading person. Is that Egyptian influence?
