Griffins - History and Meaning

 

Griffins

 

 

Griffins are mythological creatures, with lion's body and eagle's head and wings. As a combination of two powerful animals -the lion being the king of jungle and the eagle the king of the birds- griffin is a very strong mythical creature-symbol and king of all creatures.

 

In Greek mythology griffins were the emblem of god Zeus, denoting his supremacy in the sky and on earth. It was also said that they pulled the chariot of sun god Apollo.

 

Griffins are known as well as guardians of treasures and protectors of the divine power.

 

Griffins have been used as heraldry symbols, denoting strength, courage, bravery, vigilance in battles and leadership.
