i'm not aware of any standard, it appears arbitrary to me. i've sent a 
couple of questions
about it to one of the local VFD chiefs, he hasn't gotten back to me yet.
in any event, the use case is to help firemen find hydrants when they don't
know the area, so it's purely about appearance for my application.

if i do learn of a standard scheme, i'll write about it to the list. but 
what i'm seeing now that i'm actually paying attention to it, i don't think
there is one.
