Rather not. This sign speaks "Forbidden. Don't dare". Digikam needs
something like "Look at me! I am new here!". Yellow dot is doing exactly
this (IMO). Yellow is used often as increasing awareness color (change
colors in traffic lights, jackets of police/firefighters, etc.)

Golden star has good color but 5-point star in KDE has different
meaning: "Favorite. I like this item much".

If not yellow dot it could be 8-point star. It is used as "New"
indicator in "Net tab" icon in Konsole and Konqueror.
