Date of Issue : 8 March 2013

The new stamp and first-day cover depicts violet iris flowers. Irises have been cultivated for around two thousand years; the plant originates from the Mediterranean region. Approximately 250 species of iris are known in the wild, found in Asia, Europe, North America and North Africa. It is recommended to plant irises in sunny spots, so they are sometimes called children of the sun. Irises have a rich variety of colors - in Ancient Greek, the word iris meant rainbow.
