Based on the photo, I think it's more likely to be some sort
of I. pallida rather than Sierra Blue - Sierra Blue is closer to
true blue rather than lavender. However, there are a *lot* of
historic iris with this basic color scheme - it can be very
difficult to tell them apart.

"blue flag" works for me :-)
