Change the Star Setting to Rank Email Messages

You can change the star settings in Gmail with the Settings > General > Stars option. There are twelve star options available, including different colored stars and other symbols.

Once your options are changed, mark a message with the symbol of your choice by the number of times you click the star next to the message. Click the star once, it turns yellow. Click it twice, it turns the next color on the list... and so on.
