Eagles represent divine majesty, the superiority of the intellect over the physical and of the spiritual over the material. 

In Islam, the eagle represents nobility and dominion. The Hawk of Quraish is a symbol which is found on a number of emblems, coats of arms and flags of several states of the Arab League.

The Eagle was taken as a symbol of pride and dignity.
