Lots of buildings showing blue trim in Ukraine, Russsia, rural Greece etc. Everywhere where Orthodox religion remains strong.
A good read is Mario Puzo's book, "The Sicilian" as it explains a 'lot' about the cultural colors of peoples homes in Sicily...and many don't even know why they choose certain colors. It might not explain the family-colors where the ride takes place, but there is enough carry over that you will get the drift.
