On my monitor the piping has the same "crayon green" hue as the green flag embroidery of a Jager/Gebirgsjager standard bearer's shield.

I think this is due to the rayon thread that the piping is made from which is also the same type of thread the flags are embroidered from on the shields.

All of these piping materials (badge cloth, boiled wool, artificial silk, cotton twill, etc.) react and/or reflect/present the dyes differently, hence the variations in many shades of the exact same color that could come from the same dye lot.

Just my thoughts and nice straps nonetheless.
