I found the following.

It appears that the red card and the yellow card are British inventions and were invented so as to assist communication through the language barrier between a referee and a player at an international football match where the referee and the player may perhaps not speak the same language.

My opinion is that it would be a good to encode the cards with variation selector capability such that an author may request monochrome heraldic hatching style or coloured card without heraldic hatching style from plain text.
