    I have noticed Motorhomes with logos of Bulls, Moose & wolves. What are the significance of these ?

    I've seen loads of shops selling the moose sticker in Germany - it's strange to see a German van that doesn't have one!

    I think the fish is a religous symbol. Sign of the fisherman? :Smile:

    I think some people make themselves from black sticky back plastic .. seen them on road side stands in Morocco and Spain.. other than that I don't know.

    Pound shops ? :ROFLMAO:

    The Fish is a Christian symbol .. not going to speculate on a Muslim sign :roflmto:

    Logos

    Hi

    We are fairly new too 2 full year.

    My interpretation is : Bull for Spain, Moose for Scandinavia, Cockerel for France although someone else told me Portugal.

    They are like notches on your bedpost - so to speak.

    I will stand corrected if anyone disagrees:Smile:

    The fish is born again christian I think. The bull is also used in regions of France along with the white horse of the Camargue .

    The fish was a leaping trout or salmon & not the usual minimalist fish used as a religious icon.:Smile:
