No, this is the dollar sign. The (ins) and (cmd) flags are provided by the readline library.

The flag appears on the left side of the last line.
I cannot change it.

I guess zsh don't use readline. But it takes over the settings for the vi keybindings after I startet it from bash. I don't know the exact mechanism.

The readline config at the end of /etc/inputrc is:

set editing-mode vi
set completion-prefix-display-length 1
set show-mode-in-prompt on

The variable 'show-mode-in-prompt' is responsible for this flag.
