Since the day that Venice was found is on April 25th in 421AD, and that day is St. Mark's Day. Also, St. Mark is the patron saint of Venice. The winged lions that represents Venice is also a symbol of St. Mark. ALSO - The Winged Lion has been used by The Holy Orders of Knighthood since the founding of the Holy Orders - both Citadel & other Holy Orders - to represent the Spirit of GOD as Christ is the Lion of Judah. The Winged Lion stands for strength, loyalty, courage, and righteousness in action from heaven. A super natural appearing of the power and authority of GOD. Lions have represented monarchs or rulers for centuries and the addition of wings adds the celestial or heavenly element to the authority. Lions are brave and aggressive and the 'king of beasts', so using such symbolism adds a more vivid image of leadership against odds and trouble. The Citadel Holy Orders use a winged lion with a sword on their Holy Writ Apportion medals. The winged lion is on one side of a Citadel and a winged griffin is on the other side. Both with swords and both representing divine Holy influences and authority of The Holy Triune GOD of the Holy Christian Crusader Orders that are still in function. Hope this helps a little more with more info and examples.
