The orange triangle that symbolizes badges on Graphic Design


reminds me of "caution" symbols that I see while driving.

For example, the road construction sign:

road construction sign

Or the slow-moving vehicle sign:

slow moving vehicle symbol

Maybe it's just me, but when I see this, my instinct is to feel cautious. It feels as though there are 4 errors with my account that I must fix.

Again, maybe it's just me, but perhaps it's not and this might be better changed. Perhaps using a different color like blue or green.

    I think there's a slim chance it will be changed to blue or green, it's supposed to represent bronze

As John says, the colour will not be changed.

It might make more sense if you see it in connection with the silver and gold badges as well:

And, from the designer, the idea behind these geometric shapes are simply because they are taken from the logo of this site:
