Flashing SD card icon for Panasonic G7 camera - Why?

I was recently recording a wedding and noticed the red SD card flashing. This worried me as I thought that it was warning me that the media card was running out of space or there was no media card in the camera; however the video was OK on playback.

I checked the manual and it says that the red SD card icon indicates that the data is being recorded to the SD card but it does not tell me why the red SD card icon is flashing.

When manually changing the zoom on the camera during the recording the flashing SD card icon seemed to stop flashing for a while.

Does anyone know the reason for the flashing SD card icon?
