Container Field in FileMaker

I am trying to create a new system for our office but still incorporate some features from the old system. In the old system, we have a container field that holds a green flag icon and holds a grey flag icon. This is used to flag items to send or save. I have everything working the exact same way in the new system. However, every time I exit filemaker completely, the icons are disappeared out of the container completely. It works again every time I resave it to the container field.

The container field is stored as a global container.

It works perfectly fine in the old system where I am running FM 16 Pro Advanced and on Mac 10.12.4 for both the old and new system. Does anyone have any idea why the container fields are not saving the icons I want? Think of storing a signature in these container fields.
