Lion Argent means silver lion, - argent is silver, and passant is standing side on with one leg clawing. So our company crest is a Lion argent passant.
Argent which means silver is generally portrayed as white in heraldry as Or , which is gold is usually yellow.

I'm guessing Griffin sable rampant. When I get my heraldry books back I'll check.

From memory Gryphons cannot be rampant because of the wings but segreant is used instead.
Don't quote me but the look is the same.
