One of the many things that was lost in translation from Japanese to English. The badge's original name is the Green Badge, which I think you would agree fits. In fact, all of the original badges' names have to do with color, just like the cities' names did. Gray, Blue, Orange, Rainbow, Pink, Gold, Crimson, and Green. The Rainbow Badge, for example, pairs off with Celadon City because Celadon's original name, Tamamushi, is the name of a bug in Japan with iridescent wings. See? For whatever reason, this concept was carried over for the cities (e.g. Pewter is gray, Cerulean is blue, etc) but not for the badges. This is why you have a Volcano Badge that looks more like a flame, a Thunder Badge that looks like it's the sun, etc.

Why would games without color have important stuff named after colors?? The default main & rival character were also named after colors which makes it kinda redundant. Its a super basic and almost innocent naming scheme, kinda cute I admit but one that prolly shoulda been saved for ones that were in color! I'd say the localization did things right but still coulda done stuff better as said badge names prove.

The badge always looked like a palm leaf to me. I associate palms with islands or the areas around volcanoes, so if one considers the badges as a tour of various environments, after seeing a volcano one would go to its base and look around, i.e. see the ground/earth around it.

Man, FW SS and myself are way behind.

I think that might be a good thing.

I'm kind of flattered, though this is hilarious.
