I have some SE flair badge on my blog, one piece of SO flair, and one global SE. I noticed today that my global SE badge had transmogrified into Area51 flair. What's going on here?

enter image description here

Note: it still links to my SE global profile.

Also note: Flair is displayed incorrectly on my SE flair page!

Try to refresh now, do you still get the issue? – Nick Craver Apr 17 '12 at 12:35
@NickCraver Yes – fredley Apr 17 '12 at 12:49
@NickCraver 24 hours later, still a problem – fredley Apr 18 '12 at 12:34
@NickCraver While I see fredley's flair right, my one is wrong now. – Paŭlo Ebermann Apr 28 '12 at 13:45
Mine is back now, didn't make a note of exactly when it went back though... – fredley Apr 28 '12 at 14:06

All non-Area-51 flair data currently comes from the public API. In fact, this is the query.

There seems to have been a momentary hiccup in the API at the time your flair was cached, leaving only your Area 51 profile info in the flair.

We'll improve the logic here, e.g. stop caching bad data. Sorry for the inconvenience.
