What does the iris flower symbolize?
The rich history of the purple iris’ beauty stretches back into ancient Greek times where the flower was thought to be nature’s personification of the mythological goddess of the same name. Representative of faith, wisdom, courage, hope, and admiration, the purple iris doubles as a beautiful statement any recipient will fawn over.
Previously recognized as a national symbol of France, the iris has also become a symbol of royalty, too. The dark blue and purple irises are regarded as the most regal of the colors. Yellow irises symbolize passion, and white irises symbolize purity. Send irises to cheer up anyone’s day!
Much like how rose flowers
symbolize love and orchid flowers
stand for beauty and elegance, irises have their own unique meanings that flower-lovers adore. Schedule your special iris flower delivery today at FTD.com.
