Unsurprisingly, they were in their rights to do that.
According to the Geneva Convention (signed by most major countries), the symbol of the red cross on white is reserved to the Red Cross organization. Using it without their authorization would be analogous to the devs using Coca cola or Pepsi branding without asking.
(it's actually even worse, as this is not merely a trademark, but an international agreed upon symbol).
If they ask the games to respect the geneva convention, I'll ask them to ask the same standard of movies...
