Holo icons colours

I have a small critique of the holo icons, the red colour for residential is the same shade as for 'negative' e.g.
20201122012657_1.jpg

and the green for agricultural is the same shade as icons that are 'good' e.g.
20201122012717_1.jpg

given that red and green are very common colours for warnings and positives perhaps the residential and agricultural icons should have different colours, maybe different shades of red and green, so that meanings are not attached to the colours that apply elsewhere?

p.s. what does that shield icon mean, I keep bumping up the defence level but the icon stays, and only on some plots.

The top row it the type of plot and level.
The middle row is how many workers/occupants the plot has.
The bottom row is for things needed to upgrade to the next level, if empty then it is waiting on the timer.

Yes I know:) I'm just pointing out that if colours are used to convey information then maybe they should be unique for the information type.
