The leaves (rushes) from this plant were used on floors in medieval times. When trodden on, I understand, they give off a mildly hallucinogenic gas. Never got round to trying it myself :)
A lovely flower which appears would be of interest to the drug experimenter.

Yellow flags used to symbolize disease aboard ships, or for marking 'houses of infection'. But I guess that has nothing to do with Iris who I remember was very forthcoming.

@B. Thomas: I'm not sure Mrs G would be happy with Iris leaves all over the floor. Though I guess it depends how good the hallucinogen is :)
Some sort of wild Iris? Beautiful flower!

@dobbino: Yes it grows in wetlands and can colonise large ares with its spreading rhizomes
This is a beautiful flower. I like the bright yellow. We need to go and pick some right now!
