Green is the fourth studio album by British progressive rock musician Steve Hillage. It was recorded primarily in Dorking, Surrey, and in London, and was produced and engineered by Nick Mason, of Pink Floyd fame.

The album entered the UK charts on 29 April 1978, where it stayed for 8 weeks, hitting a peak of number 30 [The Guiness book of British Hit Albums, 1983, page 80.] .

The cover features a distinctive "pyramid fish" design by John Michell - an English writer and painter with a particular interest in numbers and geometric shapes. His design is based around the medieval vesica piscis shape - the intersection between two equal sized circles where the centre of each lies on the circumference of the other.

The Virgin catalogue number for this album on vinyl was V2098.

The album was initially issued on see through green vinyl, with later pressings on normal black vinyl. Green vinyl pressing also included a poster of Hillage superimposed on a mountain range, with the pyramid fish symbol superimposed on his face. Those green vinyl pressings also came with an insert with lyrics and additional album information.
