Iris "Bold Print" has beautiful, flamboyant, frilly-petalled white and purple flowers. It says "be bold, be yourself, and be brave enough to be different!" Today, so many people in school, college, office or social environments seem to believe that those who look, speak or act in a different way from the group of people they associate with, are somehow odd, weird, offensive or even to be feared. This essence encourages one to adhere to personal beliefs that cause no harm to others, rather than being pressured or bullied into behaving and thinking like members of the "in-crowd", whose actions or beliefs may be based on narrow-mindedness or intolerance of others. Iris "Bold Print"instils self-confidence and self empowerment. It promotes the will to research facts to back up one's beliefs. It also promotes the ability to believe in oneself and rely on one's own authority. Many original thinkers and past pioneers, (such as Galileo, who promoted the theory that the Earth revolved round the Sun), have eventually been proved to have been correct.) This essence promotes inspiration and encourages the flow of original ideas, to aid artists, dramatists and writers, and those working on pioneering research.
