Lastly, the Lango name has a cultural significance, and it is inspired by the name given to the "long" island by the Knights of the Order of St. John, also known as the Knights Hospitaller, when they occupied Kos Island.

Their presence left an indelible mark on the island's architecture, with the Castle of the Knights being a prominent example.
