The iris’s mythology dates back to Ancient Greece, when the goddess Iris,
who personified the rainbow (the Greek word for iris), acted as the link
between heaven and earth.
Our Americanism program includes all activities tending to perpetuate American ideals and to uphold the principles of American democracy. The security of America lies in a citizenry in whose minds and hearts is ingrained a true understanding of and love for those ideals and principles upon which the nation was founded; a citizenry aware of the duties of citizenship and a wiliness to perform those duties even at the cost of great personal sacrifice. Americanism work is largely educational in character and is usually divided into three phases: work with the youth, the adult, and the community. All matters pertaining to the flag or patriotic education are rightly classified as Americanism activities.
