"The griffin, griffon, or gryphon is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle's talons as its front feet." - Wikipedia

Coincidentally the griffin was also on the flag of the Emperor of Tartary.

I don't know how I have never thought about this, but what do we get when we separate the Eagle from the Lion?

Divide and Rule of sorts?

Great Seal: United States

Royal Coat of Arms: United Kingdom

Obviously we have a whole bunch of Eagles, and Lions on multiple Seals, and Coats of Arms belonging to various countries.

At this point I do not know the meaning of the Unicorn. So feel free to research, and suggest your versions.

Could there be a Unicorn on the flag of some other ancient Empire? (the one not as fortunate as Tartary to survive the censorship)

KD: Anyways, it looks to me like the Griffin was conquered and split into two: lion and eagle.
