Question Flat Black or Flat Green?

I have a 89 yj and would like to paint it flat black, but my nephew told me flat green,which doesnt look bad either.. Anyway, What do you think?
And also, what brand and finish should I use?

I found these. One of them isn't "flat," but you get the idea.

Mine's olive drab with a little clear coat mixed in it. Got a gallon of it from surplus store and had somebody paint it for me. Not exactly flat, but not glossy at all either.

That's a perfect mix.. still washable, and won't flake as easily.. Nice rig.
