The icons to the left of the branch name represent the differences between your working copy and the local branch your working copy is checked out from.

A green checkmark means there are no differences. The two icons above refer to "files changed" (90) and "unstaged new files" (1). There is also a green icon for staged new files, grey or red minus icon for deleted icons (staged or unstaged), a yellow exclamation for conflicts, and a yellow arrow for renamed files. There may be some other less common potential differences that I've never seen as well.

There are also green arrows that can show up to the right of the branch name the represent how many commits are waiting to be pushed (up) and/or pulled (down) from remotes.

EDIT: The branch icon means that the name next to it is a branch. If it has a check, that's the branch that is checked out.

These icons are the same as what shows up in the changes panels. I don't know of any documentation about them, they just seemed intuitive to me.

Thanks Seth! It is initituitive now for me.

I still wish there was a glossary of icons, as searching for these types of Questions/Answers to find a particular icon is cumbersome

I agree with Raphi Stein.

To have infographics - would help a lot!

Agree infographic page would help as it is unclear to those just starting to use Jira.
