Those are METAR flags. From the G1000 manual:
METAR flags and their associated text are displayed on the Active Flight Plan Page on the MFD. METAR flags appears next to waypoints in the flight plan with an associated METAR. A solid light blue METAR flag indicates the METAR observations are available for a specific waypoint; a hollow light blue METAR flag indicates an off-route METAR near the waypoint is available. When off-route METAR text is displayed, the system provides additional information as to the origin, distance, and direction of the report in relation to the selected flight plan waypoint.
The ones you have are the 'hollow light blue'.
