The bottom of the modal showing a user's hats has the following text:

modal legend

Yet, blue icon doesn't show the hat my account is wearing, but the one the user whose profile I'm viewing is wearing. Similarly, light blue shows the hats which that user has earned on the site I'm currently on.

I adjusted the wording slightly:

The legend now says "Currently selected hat", "Currently worn hat", and "Hat earned on this website"

The translations on international SO sites haven't changed though, so they might still use the misleading wording. I'm happy to update them, but I don't trust Google Translate. So if anyone wants to let me know what the new Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, or Japanese versions would be, I'm happy to update them as well. Failing that, we'll revisit those next year.
