"Loulaki" in Greek quite literally translates to "Lilac" in English and represents a distinctive Greek blue color. The "Loulaki blue" is the color used in the traditional island settlements who use white and blue (Lulaki Blue) for the house exterior colors. History has it that the combination of white and blue was introduced during the dictatorial rule of Metaxas (dictator during the 4th of August Regime, from 1936 until his death in 1941), in a quest for order and uniformity.
Others argue that traditional island settlements used white and "Lulaki Blue" for practical reasons.
Houses in Greece are traditionally covered with a layer of plaster (Sovas in Greek, made out of calcium carbonate or lime stone). This plaster is regularly maintained by whitewashing by the same material which under the greek sun and because of its very bright white color creates visual uncomfort. In order to "break" the brightness, people started to add a bit of blue color in their whitewash.
Why Lulaki blue? Originally "loulaki" was the name of a cleaning agent, that had this distincive blue color. This Lulaki cleaning agent was used for washing clothes and most households had some. People started whitewashing their houses with this Loulaki mix which gave houses their distinctive blue color.
