Well, not exactly... I just read this on udn.com.tw and they said that they're going to change the white belly to "the evergreen green" and there will be orange coloured "stripes" on the fuselage... the tail will remain the same...
Didn't have a pic on the site but there will be a launch of the new colour scheme on 20NOV in their TPE hanger... and there will be a 744 freshly painted on display...
Do you think it actually looks better with a green belly??

EVA once had a darkblue or darkgreen tail with a grass green EVA globe and a orange penstripe at the rear. Thát was a sophisticated livery! And imagine thát livery with a green belly: Superb!!! (look at page 85 of John K. Morton's "Flying Colours" book).
I do not like the white logo on the current EVA tail. Too remarkable just like LOT Polish Airlines. They have also a too huge white ball logo on their tail....cheap!

EVA Air changed their initial paint scheme (the dark green tail one with dark green "EVA" and light green "AIR" titles) because it doen't stand out. And all people can see from a distance is a dark green tail... So afterwards they changed the paintscheme to the current one, reflecting 100% of the EVERGREEN GROUP CIS...
I think it's unique... not many airlines use green as their main colour... and it sure does reflect the Evergreen Group attitude...
but what i don't understand is the "orange stripe" thingy... cuz the current cheatline is green with a bit of orange in the front above the letter "E"...

According to reliable sources who has close relationships with EVA Air saying that EVA Air may only change the font for both English and Chinese title, and you may not noticed that EVA changed their livery.
EVA Air is also considering to "lower the appearance of Green colour". Many people treat this "quote" as to distant its political relationships with Taiwan's DPP, current ruling party, supports Taiwan independence. EVA has denied the related reports about the political relationships.
