Ampelmann

This likable little man with hat was created in 1970 as traffic light symbol on behalf of the GDR ministry of transport. The character gained additional popularity through an East-German educational television show about road safety. After the reunification many initiatives formed to support the preservation of this popular little man. They were successful. Since 2005 this Eastern-pedestrian signal is also used in the Western districts of Berlin.
