What do the different colors of the cards represent?
The different colors make the cards stand out easier.
Orange tones need your attention (just like orange buttons), they belong to the "ToDo" type. You can find them for "Possible triangulation" and "Confirm cousin" cards, but also for adding your family tree at the start or to identify names & places that other users have published:
In general, it is better to click the "Possible triangulation" cards first since they have a chance to lead to new triangulated groups. Whereas in the "Confirm Cousin" cards will check all outstanding combinations to identify how the DNA cousins are related to one another.
Teal tones are used for cards that inform you about a new triangulated group or that a new relative has been added to a triangulated group:
They are one of the ways you can see all of the data that the app has collected for a triangulated group (after clicking on them), like surnames, locations, matching segments, and details about the people themselves and their connections to one another.

Red, blue, and dark green cards can be found in the overview of your triangulated groups or search results. They represent the paternal (blue) and maternal (red) sides of the selected user if it has been determined already. If it is yet not determined from which parent the selected user inherited the DNA segment, we will use the dark green color instead:
Light green colored cards indicate hints, for example, when our app found surname matches for a group of DNA matches:
