Hi Yohann,
Thatís a very ancient symbol:

In this case, Iíll go for the more recent, European, symbol i.e. as representation of the Holy Roman Empire.

The double-headed eagle is a common symbol in heraldry and vexillology. It is most commonly associated with the Byzantine Empire, the Holy Roman Empire and Russia.
Regards,
