Bloommerce was founded in January 2018 by Nastaran Sadeghi. After a few years of voluntary activities and support of the Iranian community in Montreal, Nastaran decided to use this opportunity and start to gather all the businesses of the Iranian-Canadians and provide a unique searching way for her community to find their required services easily and quickly. The essential purpose of Bloommerce is to support start-up and home-based businesses and let business owners introduce their services economically.
Bloommerce is the short form of two words: BLOOM means to grow or produce flowers, and COMMERCE means the activity of buying and selling. So, BLOOMMERCE means to “GROW YOUR BUSINESS”.
Since the meaning of BLOOMMERCE is to grow your business, we decided to use the CROCUS FLOWER which is one of the first flowers to emerge in the spring representing growing, blooming, and developing. The crocus symbolizes Cheerfulness, Gladness, Youthfulness, Mirthfulness, and Glee. PURPLE CROCUS represents Dignity, Pride and Success, so we chose this beautiful flower to indicate our purpose. This flower is known as “Saffron” by Iranians. Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of Crocus, which is grown commercially in many countries, especially in Iran. The crocus flower’s message is joy and cheerfulness that celebrates the return of spring.
GREEN and PURPLE were the two colours that matched with the purpose of BLOOMMERCE the most. GREEN, the colour of life, renewal, nature, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, and fertility. Green is also traditionally associated with money and finances. PURPLE Combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. It is associated with wisdom, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.
