I don’t understand this sign. What you’re…

I don't understand this sign. What you're looking at is an intersection which previously had 0 stop signs. They have since added stop signs in one direction, the orange flags are there to alert you to new signage.

What I don't understand is the addition of the yellow caution sign. what would you think a stop sign in 1 direction meant, particularly on a street which never had stop signs in the other direction to begin with?
