Großengottern Coat of Arms

Shield Gules two churches Argent and issuant from flanches, in base a heraldic rose Or.
The arms are based on the old parish seal, known since 1747. The two churches are representing the two former parishes of St. Walpurgis and St. Martinus, which were originally separate, but during the late Middle Ages the two grew together and developed into a town. The towers are small watchtowers, as already in 1340 town rights were granted, which were confirmed in 1666. The town needed some defense structures, but never had walls. The rose is alluding to Martin Luther, as the village is predominantly Lutheran.
