    Do we have a creature like Griffon, half lion half eagle? I found out that it was symbol of Lusatian Serbs (Vandals)

    griffin was displayed on coat of arms of the pomeranian greifen house.
    they had nothing to do with lusatians, who, by the way, have nothing to do with modern serbians except for a similar ethnonym.
    find some other target for your wild fantasies. what about "xyz was a serb"? you can at least entertain us.

    It is present in many CoAs but it has nothing to do with Slavic Mythology.

    Have nothing to do with todays Serbs? someone will laugh at you. We are slavs, they are slavs, same name, what do you not understand? Germans called them Wends, Polaks called them Vandals. Even today Germans call Sorbs – Wends. You can check. They also lived in todays Spain, and they established a state in Africa, that why that region in Spain is called Andaliusia (Vandalusitia). Learn some history dude.

    Grifon as mythological being exists in Slovene mythology but it is obscure and most likely legacy of medieval popularisation. I recon closest Slavic equalent to Griffin is Smiragl. But Simargl on the other hand dosen't exist in Slovene mythology.

    Lets not get to much into Sci-fi here. In older periods like Reinessance period many map makers often used various CoA's for various lands and even lands were often titled in various ways. In this case CoA is clearly modeled after House of Griffins rulers of Pommerania. At that period Vandals were by scholars often equated with Slavs or sometimes Slavs from praticular area hence such naming on this map. Such things were not uncommon. For instance on several different Reinessance maps the modeled CoA of Stjepan Vukčić Hrvatinić was used either as CoA of Bosnia, Slavonia or Dalmatia. Later AH empire used Stjepan's CoA for Condominium of Bosnia and Herzegovina. On some maps territory of Dalmatia is named Slavonia, etc, etc. In simple explanation there was whole lot of confusion.
