Libya - Order of Good Workmanship question

This came to me described as the star of the Libyan Order of Good Workmanship.  However, all the images I can find of this order show the center enameled areas to be in green, rather than red and black.  The center inscription is appropriate and it's marked by Bomisa.

Is this an earlier type?  A trial piece?  Something else entirely?

Knowing very little about this medal, is it possible that this is a 1970s-era version, when the Libyan flag's colors were red/white/black? And the green-centered ones reflect the all-green flag adopted in 1977?

It would certainly make sense that the decisions bringing about the flag change would also be reflected in the design of orders.
