November 2018 marked the 100th birthday of Mrs. Irious Thompson, who just as the Iris flower, represented the importance of valor, wisdom and faith. Our commitment to each client we serve is built upon these values.
One flower. A global symbol.
The iris implies a message and a promise of hope.
The iris flower since ancient times:
In Greek – iris means rainbow and was named after the goddess 'Iris” for its beauty and varied colors. Iris was the messenger who traveled on the rainbow between the lands of humans and the Gods.
In Egypt – iris flowers symbolized power and majesty. The people of Egypt placed an iris flower on the brow of the Sphinx and the scepter of Egyptian kings for valor, wisdom and faith.
"Knowledge speaks, wisdom listens." – Jimi Hendrix
"Perfect valor is to do, without a witness,
all that we could do before the whole world." - Francois de La Rochefoucauld
"Let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good."
- Maya Angelou
