    I've always known it as yellow and green should never been seen. but to be fair I don't think you should wear red and green togther either. blue and green you could get away with depending on the shade.
    if you put green should never be seen in google on the pull down bit it gives you loads of colours that go in that saying so probably depends who taught you

    Just Googled it as I had no idea!! Apparently, it's both!!

    "Blue and green should never be seen, without a colour in-between"

    People have been debating whether it is blue/red and green. The only thing that I got from it is ......... Green with ANY other colour is not a good idea!!!!

    My mum always says "Blue and green should never be seen, except on the back of an Irish colleen". Luckily that includes me, so I can wear blue and green check shirts to my heart's content. :)

    I had the "blue and green" rhyme quoted at me when I was a child. As I always was a contrary thing (nothing has changed!) I used to say "what about bluebells then, they look nice and they have blue flowers and green leaves?". Got into trouble for answering back! But I still think that certain shades of blue and green look lovely together.

    Red and green are at opposite sides of the colour spectrum. Artists use this fact to good effect in landscapes - Constable and Corot, for instance, would put a tiny amount of red (a person in a red jacket, or a red roof) in a predominantly green landscape. You might not even notice it at first, but cover it up and you can see it does make a difference.

    And at the opticians, some of the tests have red and green backgrounds.

    LOL - I've always known the rhyme as 'red and green should never be seen except on the back of the fairy queen'- apparently it's unlucky to wear red and green together.
    I've never heard the blue and green rhyme before
