The Order of the Iris of Merit of Ansteorra is an award that was created by the 1st Crown of Ansteorra. It is for exceptional work in the arts and sciences.

The Iris is a Grant level award.

The award ranks just below all nobility and peers and before simple Grants of Rank. It has equal precedence with the Order of the White Scarf, Star of Merit, Centurions of the Sable Star, Arc d'Or of Ansteorra and Golden Lance of Ansteorra.

Companions of the Order shall be entitled to wear a ribbon tinctured in the spectrum of a natural rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet) about either shoulder.
