The first mentions of the name LAMPERT go back to the year 1418. According to church records, the family LAMPERT has its origin in Triesen Liechtenstein. Liechtenstein, officially the Principality of Liechtenstein, is a German-speaking state located in the Alps between Austria and Switzerland. According to the historical records, the family was known as bankers and money changers.
The first line of the LAMPERT family stayed in Liechtenstein, the second line of the family moved to Austria and the third line of the family emigrated to the United States of America. The LAMPERT family holds two emblems: One is LAMPERT 1593 and the other is LAMPERT 1675. Each emblem contains different colors and symbols that have a certain meaning (heraldic).
The LAMPERT family was granted their first emblem in 1593. This emblem displays the color red and gold with a shield topped with a golden crown and striding lamb. The shield itself displays a castle with a golden roof on each side. Atop the shield rests the golden crown, a symbol of power and royalty. And rising from the crown is a striding lamb, symbolizing purity, wisdom, and joy.
The first color is the heraldic gold, which surpasses the brilliance of all other metals and symbolizes prestige, virtue, and majesty. This transitions to the silver which symbolizes purity and wisdom. These colors are tied in with the red on the label, representing the patriotic spirit of chivalric service to the fatherland. Red represents victorious power and dominion.
