THE RED IRIS

​The iris flower is a symbol of royalty, faith, wisdom, hope and valor. The red iris is a unique and rare color that occurs most often in nature. An iris that is dominantly red can also have hints of purple and yellow. 

 

Named after the Greek goddess, the Iris flower has become a symbolic image. Iris was the goddess of the rainbow and a messenger for Zeus and Hera. She carried messages from heaven to earth on the arc of the rainbow, and was a companion to female souls on to heaven.

 

Kappa Psi Theta Fraternity identifies with the red iris due to its feminine origin and representation for royalty.
