Flag (Iris)
 
The yellow flags  *  *  *  would stand
Up to their chins in water.
        Jean Ingelow—Song of the Night Watches. Watch I.

And nearer to the river’s trembling edge
  There grew broad flag-flowers, purple, prankt with white;
And starry river buds among the sedge;
  And floating water-lilies, broad and bright.
        Shelley—The Question.
