Note that the Green Knight has been sent to shame Camelot. Green is, actually, rather complex in its symbolic uses: on the one hand, it suggests vegetation, Nature, "natural magic," the Earth, and what is "untamed"; on the other, it suggests sickness and decay; it is opposed (in the medical manuals) to red, which promotes healing. As a liturgical color it may be supposed to suggest times of spiritual growth (though I don't have information at hand about its medieval liturgical uses). [.]
