The angle α is 60°.
Extend the circle and draw the inscribed regular hexagon. It is easy to see that ABCD is a parallelogram. From the condition yellow is green it follows that the extended common base DE cuts the diagonal AC in half. So it must be the other diagonal DB. Now, ∠BEC=∠BAC=120°, making α=60°.
