About This Item

Unser Ampelmännchen "Der Geher"

 Der Begriff Ampelmännchen (auch Ampelmann) ist die allgemeinsprachliche Bezeichnung für das Fußgängersignal einer Ampel. Es zeigt in der Rotphase das Sinnbild eines stehenden und in der Grünphase das Sinnbild eines schreitenden Fußgängers. Diese Form der Fußgängersignalisierung wurde 1961 vom Ost-Berliner Verkehrspsychologen Karl Peglau erfunden und kommt heute in unterschiedlichen Darstellungsformen weltweit zum Einsatz.

Ampelmännchen: little traffic light man, pl. Ampelmännchen) is the symbolic person shown on traffic lights at pedestrian crossings in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR - East Germany). Prior to the German reunification in 1990, the two German states had different forms for the Ampelmännchen, with a generic human figure in West Germany, and a generally male figure wearing a hat in the east.

The Ampelmännchen is a beloved symbol in Eastern Germany, "enjoy[ing] the privileged status of being one of the few features of communist East Germany to have survived the end of the Iron Curtain with his popularity unscathed." After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Ampelmännchen acquired cult status and became a popular souvenir item in the tourism business.
