Yellow flag

Our front garden is full of tiny purple irises at the moment, which has set me wondering two things:

1. Why are the tiny ones always purple and never yellow?


2. Why did my grandmother always call yellow irises Yellow Flags, but never call purple ones Purple Flags?

I suppose you'll all tell me that they are completely unrelated species, but they look very much alike to me and I've used this iris stamp, bought from the USA so long ago that I had to write a letter and post it in order to order it, instead of just logging in to a website, to make a Yellow Flag.

I'm playing along with
