Lots of variations on which colours are lucky or not, depending on where you live. Green - bad in the UK, good in Eire, is also the colour of Mohammeds robe so auspicious for Islam, ancient Egyptians though it was thumbs up as well becaus eof fertility and new growth - but it also suited the motor racing crowd as the 'national' team colour for GB was green.
Chinese use white for mourning - black in the West, and so it goes on.
Green may be associated with bad luck from one story that as Napoleon was held in a green room before his death, the colour may have had some influence - which was probably true as arsenic used to be used to 'fix' colours in wallpapers, and the bedroom he slept in had the lateset green wallpaper. As the moisture leached out the arsenic from the paper, its though it could have been one possible cause of his death.
Green was also associated with the fairy folk, decay and aging, so again translated into bad luck issues.
All depends where you're from really.
And statistically insurers will tell you green cars have the most accidents..........
