The colour green

Superstition: The colour green is considered to be unlucky. This is said to date from the time when most performances were given out-of-doors. Wearing green would make it hard to distinguish the actor from grass/trees/bushes in the natural setting beyond the performing area. Another possible cause of this superstition is that green light tends to make actors look corpse-like. Despite this superstition, the off-stage waiting area for actors is referred to as the green room.
