In heraldry, the lion symbolizes dauntless courage. The lion is regarded as the king of beasts.
The eagle displayed, or spread eagle, symbolizes strength, bravery and alertness and also one who is high spirited, ingenious and quick witted. When the wings are displayed, as they are here, it signifies protection. The eagle is regarded as the king of birds.
