Happy Iris Day!

Celebrating Iris Day

The name, Iris, comes from the Greek word for the goddess of the rainbow, possibly referring to the diverse range of colors that irises are available. Named after a goddess, the iris flower has also been revered all over the world. In Japan, for example, irises were admired as a symbol of purity, cleansing and protection from any evil energies, which is why irises can often be found in kimono fabrics, woodblocks and more.
