From what you say I would think your end of line. So green/yellow all go together to earth. The reds also go together but do not connect to the light its self, One black with be neutral and go to (blue) on lamp and other black will be line and should have red sleeve and goes to Line (brown) on lamp. This assumes it has all followed normal wiring. There is more on this in projects section.
