Why do the comment flags have different colours in the screenshot below? what do they mean/indicate? and why do they change colours when the page is reloaded?

The answer is not obvious to me, because it can't be comment length (short comments - like red and yellow arrow - have the differing colours) and it can't be because some are upvoted and others are not (green and yellow arrows have differing colours).

Maybe it's about time elapsed since flag was raised? Not sure.

It's not really a problem, but some clarity would be nice.
