Iris Day is observed on May 08, 2017. The celebration of Iris Day might have Japanese roots because this flower has spiritual meaning in Japan. It is a symbol for creativity, great power and good news to come. No wonder there is an Iris Day to celebrate this beautiful purple-blue bloomer. The name of the flower comes from the Greek goddess of rainbows.
A good way to honour the Iris Day is to plant or seed some of this flowers around your house. They bloom in late spring, so you can appreciate them next year on Iris Day. It would also be a lovely gesture to give away some irises to a someone who reminds you of power or the pretty Greek goddess of rainbows.
