Questions about the colored banners in the tracking screen

Good morning everyone! I have been trying to figure out what the orange and green flags in the corners on the tracking screens mean, haven’t found anything yet and I was hoping someone might illuminate me. Thanks in advance.

I should note that these banners appear on the mobile phone version of the software. I work as a ramp operator for a small station currier and we’ve never figured this out.

Would you be able to post a screenshot of what you are seeing? My initial thought is they are indicators of a flight being on time or delayed, but without seeing the exact location, I cannot be 100% sure.


Indeed, those are indicators of whether the flight is on-time, slightly delayed, or more than slightly delayed.

So the turn orange when it is significantly delayed?

Red would be significantly delayed
