This signal in Mt. Carmel, PA was unusual in two ways. (1) Both sections were lit continuously, (2) a "reverse" arrow is used for the green.  I'm not sure, but I think the cross traffic got a flashing yellow, while the opposite side of the intersection met a flashing red.

This signal has since been removed, with a "STOP Except Right Turn" remaining.  State Route 61 follows this continuity.

Red flashing lights with continuously lit green arrows aren't unheard of in Pennsylvania (see US 62/PA 8 in Franklin at https://goo.gl/maps/ZPtePwex35Tfc7RS6) but having the red on continuously would be odd.

There's a 4-way traffic signal at the intersection of Parkovaya and Moskovskaya streets in Vorkuta, Russia. It's a very rare sight, as I don't ever recall seeing a 4-way signal in Russia.
It's still there and still works today.

Here it is in action.

I stumbled upon this video about ten years ago.

That "green + yellow" sequence was once used in East Germany. Sadly no more. In Russia we have our own equivalent of that, flashing green, which means the light is about to turn yellow.

Selma, AL still has a lot of old Eagle(?) 4-way signals without a redundancy, I think most of them have been retrofitted with LED lights though. There are several on Church, Lauderdale, and Washington, and MLK St but some other streets have 1 or 2.
