The original blue and gold colors were to resemble notre dame, earl lambeau graduated from there. I'm not quite sure about the green and gold though.
This is the story I heard from a conductor at the Illinois train Museum. I had made the joke that even the owners of the Chicago Northwestern RR were Packer fans. The conductor on a trolley car told me that Curly Lambeau and an exec at CNWRR were friends. Curly was needing to paint the stadium and couldn't acquire the needed paint. The railroad exec let Curly have a truck load of Hunter Green and Yellow paint from the railroad. The CNWRR's passenger train colors were those colors. I cannot verify the story.
Many people do not know that the Packers colours were originally Blue and Yellow all the way up until the mid 1930's. (Contrary to their current Green an Yellow colouring.)
The name-Packers originated on August 11th, 1919 when Earl "Curly" Lambeau solicited funds for equipment from the Indian Packing Company. He was given $500 for equipment on the condition that the team be termed the Green Bay Packers. The Indian Packing Company's logo was Blue and Yellow coloured hence the Packers (1919-1935) main colours. The reason behind the switch to green and yellow is uncertain. THANKS FOR USING ANSWERS.COM!
