Green Checkered Flag on Instrument Cluster
 
Just today noticed this odd green checkered flag on the instrument cluster on my brand new GC diesel 2014. Went through the user manual, no joy. Called the Uconnect number while driving and although slow and inexperienced with diesel jeeps she was quite pleasant but could not tell me what this symbol is.

If anyone knows what the green checkered flag on the right of center in the upper portion of the instrument cluster is let me know. It is just near the P symbol on the transmission gear indicator, it is below the air ride status (in yellow) above it and is equally spaced away from the compass directional indicator on the upper right.

Here in Indy , our checkered flags are black and white and the green flag means "go racing". Green checkered seems harmless enough but ambiguous, not readily documented in what I could find and confusing

Sport mode.

Happens anytime you use the Paddle shifters or when you manually shift out of Drive. and if you have select terrain there there is a sport option

It is sport mode. To get activate it, pull back on the shifter once you are in drive. To get out of it, pull back on the shifter again.
