Animal symbolism:

Lion: the king of  beasts, a symbol of strength and courage; the emblem of the tribe of Judah, of St Mark the Evangelist, of many families, regions and cities, including Jerusalem and Venice; the emblem of a French bank and of a French car manufacturer (Peugeot); lions are ubiquitous on Parisian buildings: they guard doors, support balconies and sometimes top off roofs.
