The Iris (eye of heaven) is an ancient flower whose symbolism is embedded in Egyptian, Greek and Roman mythology. Irises are also associated with the history of European monarchies, especially French royalty, in the form of heraldry. Since the 5th century the Iris flower has been represented in the stylized form of the Fleur de Lis symbol, the three petals of the iris signifying valor, wisdom and faith. The Greeks named the flower after the messenger goddess Iris, who traveled on the arcs of rainbows and guided the souls of women to the Elysian Fields. Cultivated Iris most common to the Americans, originated in the species Iris Germnica, native to southern Europe.
