IRIS Project Name History

In the times of ancient gods, on Mount Olypus lived the goddess of rainbow – Iris. Aproximately at the same time on earth bloomed a flower with brightly colored petals that sparkled in the sun with whimsical shades, and reminded everyone of the rainbow. For this same reason people named the flower Iris in honor of the goddess of rainbow.

In accordance with Feng-Shui teachings, Iris as a flower symbolizes the most valued things in life: prosperity, strong family bonds and longevity. In other beliefs this flower symbolizes: harmony, faithfulness and cleanness.

The special symbolism of Iris was the thing that inspired the creators of this project. The idea behind the project was to create a place where people can be closer to nature, to create a place where people can enjoy peace, beautiful green landscapes and architecture, as well as to create opportunities for a successful and comfortable life in area that is closed from prying eyes.

Iris is a flower that reflects the most important things in life: hope, loyalty, family, success. And all of this and more, you will be able to  find in our project “IRIS”!
