The griffin (German: Greif) is often seen in Baden. It's a legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle.
You will find griffins as sculptures on the Europaplatz or at the Verfassungssäule. Griffins are also on the Arms of Baden-Württemberg or the logo of Bildungsverein Region Karlsruhe, who is the support association of this wiki.
