DOUGLAS PAUL LEIBBRANDT
This coat of arms was founded with all Leibbrandt's in mind,
on 25 November 1991 by Douglas
Paul Leibbrandt, born in Cape Town, South Africa, 1927.
Registered by the Bureau of Heraldry, i.e. by the State Herald of the Republic of South Africa, Pretoria.
The flaming sword in the center symbolizes the meaning of the name 'The People of the Burning Sword'.
The lions are the Bavarian lions, note the left hand one has two tails.
The lion above the helm is in honour of the Leibbrandt spelled Luitprand,
a Bishop of Cremona (~ 920-972), the lion of Lombardy.
To him we owe a history, and the origin of the name,
because the King of Lombardy, Luitprand (713-744 A D) probably went into battle with 'a burning sword'.
Read the History of the Leibbrandts.
The motto ' Ingenuitas' is Latin for ingenuity.
Most Leibbrandt's seem to have this quality in abundance.
Legally , the owner and his offspring can use the coat of arms.
As the legal owner I have no objection to any true Leibbrandt using my coat of arms.
A true Leibbrandt is one born with the surname Leibbrandt.
