Evil Eye The symbol and superstition of the evil eye is one of the strongest symbolic images in the world. The earliest known evidence for belief in the evil eye goes back to ancient Greece and Rome. It is suppose to wear off evil to anyone who wears it and various cultures believe in that, however in Greece it’s blue because at that time blue eyes were not so common and were thought to give the evil eye, so the blue is like a mirror to them. Nowadays it’s widely known and has became a trend.
