General info :
Green: EN
Abbreviation: UKV

The box art or booklets of Nintendo games from PAL (Europe) territories all have a different little colored triangle on the spines.
U.S. and Japanese games don't have those triangles.
This is to show the region that the game is intended for.
Notice that all colors will play on all consoles in the same PAL area.
Also notice that Nintendo DS is not region locked contrary to the Nintendo 3DS that is region locked.

Some common triangle colors are:
Green = UK,
Pink = Spain,
Red = France,
Dark Blue = Germany
Brown = Australia.

There are 49 different colours (UK Nintendo The Official Magazine: Issue 21; 21st Oct. 07 )
As well as geographic region it is also to do with the language of the Box & booklets, though PAL region.
All PAL games work on PAL consoles.
