Exit sign in Arc de Triomphe, Paris

Exit sign in Arc de Triomphe, Paris

This is a cool-looking exit sign in the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. It is lit with a fluorescent (6W T5 ?). What I like the most of this one is the light playing in the finished edge thickness of the clear plastic panel.

I've seen French exit lights that say "SORTIE", I guess this is a universal pictoral, as this is a tourist place.

Here in Canada, the "running man" exit sign pictogram is available and more widely seen (only since about 2012). The French signs that say SORTIE are still seen in French-speaking areas (my place of work is full of them) however they are red. There is also some double-width signs that say either EXIT SORTIE or SORTIE EXIT. I prefer the pictogram for the same reasons as Selenium mentioned.

The 'running man' is an international pictogramm for me and can be comprehensive for every people.

Here in Australia it used to be a white "EXIT" on a green background, now it's typically the running man. I'm not sure when the change happened here.

Whenever I have the choice (exit signs or otherwise) I always prefer a pictogram as it is comprehensive in every language (in theory at least). Another example of elegant pictogram use is the Schengen passport stamps.
