Green is considered the traditional color of Islam and is sacred to the faith. Islam used/uses this shade of green symbolically because the tribe of the prophet Muhammad had a green banner and because to them green represented paradise (the Persian word for garden) to desert-dwelling Bedouin tribes when they gathered at an oasis. Islam venerates the color, as it expects paradise to be full of lush greenery. Many flags of the Islamic world are green, as the color is considered sacred in Islam.
