I think you're referring to the Taiwan site:


The purple banded antenna appears to be the same as the stock antenna on the US market radios (763-870 Mhz)

The green banded antenna is probably (no proof other than my opinion) for the VHF/UHF G5S.

If this is the case, the green banded antenna would pretty much be useless on the current US version G4 or G5. The G5 uses an internal antenna for UHF.

The purple band is the stock antenna that comes with the G4/G5 for the 700-800 band. For the G5, the VHF/UHF antenna is internal.

I think the green tip is for one of the international models that does not have the 700-800 band. The order options there for the G4 single or G5 dual band allows you to have a pager with just VHF or UHF.

There are a couple of threads on different antennae you can buy from other manufacturers. Motorola make a couple that have gotten some good reviews.
