Arkansas state highway spur routes are signed using standard state highway shield backgrounds. The number remains the same size and a "S" (for spur) is added in an almost-exponential format. Shield sizes remain, one-digit routes keep the 24-by-24-inch (61 cm × 61 cm) shields, while two-digit routes become 24-by-36-inch (61 cm × 91 cm). Three-digit routes are the same as the parent route with the "S" placed in the available corner space. The "Spur" banners are usually not used by the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department, which instead prefers to use only a direction banner.

Famous quotes containing the word shields:
“Your cloak hides the sinner,
your cloak shields the lover,
colour of wine,
—Hilda Doolittle (18861961)
“If one doubts whether Grecian valor and patriotism are not a fiction of the poets, he may go to Athens and see still upon the walls of the temple of Minerva the circular marks made by the shields taken from the enemy in the Persian war, which were suspended there. We have not far to seek for living and unquestionable evidence. The very dust takes shape and confirms some story which we had read.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“No other man-made device since the shields and lances of the ancient knights fulfills a mans ego like an automobile.”
—Sir William Rootes (18941964)
