Queen's Circle is not know to be a space age iris. This iris has lovely horns. Also if you look closely at the pattern of blue on the falls of this iris it comes much further up on the falls. It is not a thin Emma Cook border. I think the flower in this photo is misidentified.

Does anyone have any idea what this one is? I have one that was sent to me tagged Queen's Circle but I think it was mislabeled. it appears to be the same as the one in the photo. Thank you!

Annette, there are many iris with this similar look, they only way to possibly even get close to an ID is to grow a suspected match side by side but being that it's a 'space age' might help in pinning down an ID easier. Does yours also have the 'space age' beards? Try posting a few photos in the Iris Forum and someone may recognize it.
