Abstract: In our previous work, we identify the Sublattice-Pairing State SPS inSchwinger-fermion representation as the spin liquid phase discovered in recentnumerical study on a honeycomb lattice. In this paper, we show that SPS isidentical to the zero-flux $Z 2$ spin liquid in Schwinger-boson representationfound by Wang\cite{Wang2010} by an explicit duality transformation. SPS isconnected to an \emph{unusual} antiferromagnetic ordered phase, which we termas chiral-antiferromagnetic CAF phase, by an O4 critical point. CAF phasebreaks the SU2 spin rotation symmetry completely and has three Goldstonemodes. Our results indicate that there is likely a hidden phase transitionbetween CAF phase and simple AF phase at large $U-t$. We propose numericalmeasurements to reveal the CAF phase and the hidden phase transition.
