All scholars agreed to avoid portraying literary elements and we will work towards removing these symbols in the coming updates.
We leave this FAQ up to benefit others with the knowledge in case they come across this question inshaAllah.

According to our Advisor, Shaykh Umer Khan:

It is generally not a problem to portray normal everyday objects mentioned in the Qur'ān using badges (for example, an icon of the sajdah position for Sūrah al-Sajdah, a cave entrance for Sūrah al-Kahf, or a cow for Sūrah al-Baqarah). However, portrayals of prophets, items from the ghayb (the "Unseen"), etc would not be permissible. For example, someone had asked if the throne/chair of Allah can be portrayed, and this would be a hard NO. The same applies to portrayals of angels, the Day of Judgement, Heaven, Hell, etc. Someone also asked regarding a heart badge for Sūrah Yāsīn. It being the heart of the Qur'ān is based on aḥādīth (Prophetic narrations) that are on the weaker side of the spectrum, so you may want to take that into consideration. Honestly, it would probably be easier for people to understand the badge if you just put the letters يس on it.
