Below you will find "thumbnail
images" for two different Knapp crests. Although they are
not specific to any particular Knapp line, these have been
assigned to the Knapp surname. This means that there is no
heraldry claim to either of these images. They are only an emblem
to be displayed for those who wish to.
Under the images is an explanation of
the meanings to the crests. If you would like to view the crests
full size, please click on the thumbnail image. Be very patient,
they are large images and slow loading.
