Today, after some work (and a lot of searching), I present the national colors of Saxe-Schweinrot.

The field is green, and because a certain culinary style is so popular in the country, the mottos on the flags were obvious.

Saxe-Schweinrot was settled by people from the Franco-Spanish border region (displaced by Louis XIV during the numerous court cases that proved all of these lands devolved to him (thus the War of the Devolution). This explains the motto on one side in Spanish, and the motto on the other in French.

The reverse translates as "Barbecue This" while the obverse is "For God and Good Barbecue".

Sort of what you were thinking, I believe.
