Why is the La Antigua Guatemala flag green?

Guatemala and Antigua flags

On July 23rd I mentioned that the people of Antigua are known as Panzas Verdes —green bellies—, so it is no surprise that the flag of La Antigua Guatemala is green, as green is their foot ball —soccer— team uniform as well as many schools’ uniforms.

Can you guess why are Antigüeños known as Panzas Verdes?
