Perunika (Iris) is the symbol of Perun, God of Thunder, the most powerful God in Slavic pantheon.
This symbol was worn on the chest of the glorious knights in Slavic history, it was believed to evoke hidden powers, warriors wore it with pride, and our ancestors regarded it as the best protection against natural disasters (thunder and lightning) so Perunika was very much used as the ornament on Slavic homes and that custom survived to this day.
