• I've never heard of an actual "sign" being presented inside a church to announce the Blessed Sacrament is reserved there. An easy way to find out is to go inside the church and see if there is a sanctuary, usually at the front of the church where the whole body of the church can see it. The actual container in which the Blessed Sacrament, or Eucharist, is held in reserve, is called a tabernacle and it sits within the sanctuary in view of all the faithful. The tabernacle is colorful and ornate, it is made of solid strong material and is kept secured.
  • In Roman Catholic tradition, a candle in red glass (to give a red light) on the altar is what's used to indicate that there are consecrated Hosts present -- you may want to check this, but that should give you enough to go on for a Google search or asking a priest. Any priest will be happy to answer you.
