The flag indicator and the suggested edit indicator look exactly alike, they can only be distinguished by their position (from left to right: flags, “review”, suggested edits).

Most other sites use a different color, often yellow for flags and brown for suggested edits. Just to make things worse, the indicators are in a different order on beta sites!

Please use different colors for the two indicators on Ask Ubuntu.

I do agree with that. I find my self clicking on the wrong one from time. So having different colors for each is a good idea. Plus the fact that the review flag queue is still out of sync. See this post.

  • What colours do you suggest?
