Spot the City of London Griffins Photo Contest

griffin.jpg (162 KB)The Griffin is a legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. Seen as guardians of secretly buried wealth, the griffin became the symbol of strength. It is one of the most common mythical creatures representing the hoped for nobility of leaders in our human society.

The City of London has griffins as supporters for its coat of arms, and it marks its boundaries with statues of a single “griffin” carrying the City coat of arms. They can be found at each road leading into the City of London. The City of London griffins are heraldic dragons with scaly bodies and wings, no feathers, and no eagle’s beak.

The griffins can be spotted in many places around the City of London.
