Wappen von Groß-Bieberau

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms show a canting beaver (Biber), which already appeard on the local seals from the 16th century. The arms showed the beaver in black on a golden field until 1957 when the above arms were granted (see below for the old arms). The new colours are those of the Counts of Katzenelnbogen. The village belonged to the counts since 1267 and they granted the city rights in 1312.
