The Picard family arms

The Picard family is a French family with strong ties to Spain and France.

The history of this family dates back several centuries and is kept in a leather-bound family album that has been passed down in the Picard family for generations. Picard claimed the family could trace its roots back to the time of Charlemagne in the 8th century in western Europe. (TNG: "Journey's End")

When being raised, young Picards are always taught about the great Picards in their history, often to the point of feeling that they have to live up to someone's standards. Some of the more accomplished Picards include the Picard who won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, the one who commanded a French warship at the Battle of Trafalgar, or the ones who settled the first Martian colonies. (Star Trek Generations)

The Picard vineyards, located in La Barre, France, are well known for their wine production, notably for their Chateau Picard vintage. There is also some relation to Chateau La Barre. (TNG: "Family", "All Good Things...")

Not many of the Picards were explorers or space-faring people, in fact, Jean-Luc Picard was the first in the family to leave the Sol system. (Star Trek Nemesis)

The Picard family arms were quarterly, first and fourth Or a lion rampant reversed gules, second and third azure a bend sinister wavy between two estoiles Or.
