Description:
A "blue plaque" is a sign attached to a house where (maybe) someone famous once lived, or placed where a notable event took place, or attached to a building that is remarkable in another way.

Note: Please see additional updates below for some minor adjustment to the Requirements for this Category made on 12/27/2008.
Expanded Description:
Waypoints for this category are for "blue plaques" associated with local or regional organizations that manage a "blue plaque" program (so don't even think of spray-painting a "blue sign" and hanging it on your front door!)

And the same is true in the United States. For example, in California, the County of Santa Cruz has a Blue Plaque program:
