I believe the color of the proposed logo is orange rather than bright red. And
I think its a pretty good color for git, as it conveys friendliness and
Additionally, orange/red alerts and attracts the eye while green is calming,
uninteresting. Imagine a page with five different SCM logos. If you want git to
stand out, choose orange/red. If you want git to be overlooked choose green.
Just my 2 cents.
