References:

From Maple Valley Iris Garden catalog, 1937: BLUE BANNER (Kirk. 1929) M. 34 in. A brilliant. electric blue bicolor that causes much favorable comment. A vivid blue that carries well. 20c.
From Quality Gardens catalog 1930: BLUE BANNER (Kirkland 1929) L. 36" S.F. A new, beautiful and unique color. The flower is on the order of B. Y. Morrison but the falls instead of being raisin purple are light blue shading lighter to the edge. The general effect of the flower is a very bright electric blue. There is no flower quite like it. It is the most brilliant blue we have ever seen. Growth rampant. This is a very striking flower. It attracted great attention in our garden last year and was greatly admired. We strongly recommend this to our customers. $10.00.
