Eagle - Two Headed

The Double Headed Eagle is associated with Scottish Freemasonry, and significant to them as a symbol of vision and initiation. The Double Headed Eagle was also sacred to German Heraldry and royalty. The German eagle had its head turned to the left, and the Roman eagle to the right. When Charlemagne was made “Kaiser of the Holy Roman Empire”, he joined the two heads together, one looking east and the other west, thus symbolizing the union of these two powers.
