If he likes red it seems earning red would be the way to go?
Why can't they make a red card with a green sticker (or add a red sticker too)? Or maybe red could be good in his case (minus the sad face...which kinda icks me out altogether for some reason!)
If the school won't cooperate would he be excited to bring home a green card and get a red sticker or something like that in exchange?
Does he like traffic lights or trains or anything like that? DS's therapist used to use traffic lights when he was small...green lights mean keep on doing what you're doing, yellow means "slow down...you're starting to get out of control", and red means "you need to take a break to cool down". We'd actually have a cardboard stop sign and velcro the colored light he was at onto the cardboard.

OK, this is looking at the whole school, but you might ask them to think about changing to PBIS ([UR="http://www.pbis.org/"]Positive Behavioral Intervention Support[/URL]) - it'd do away with the cards altogether.
Other than that, working on "red means stop, green means go" is about is good as I can come up with.
