Gröbenzell Coat of Arms

In a silver (= white) shield on top of a green basement is a silver (= white) and blue customs barrier, superimposing a blue pale wavy, which is flanked by two red, heraldic roses, [sometimes] seeded silver (= white).
The barrier, having the colours of the Wittelsbach kin, reminds on the existence of a tollgate in the village from the 17th until the 19th century. Duke Albrecht V built this station in 1560. The first houses were built in the 19th century and the station became a village. The pale is symbolising the Gröbenbach, a local creek. The basement is symbolising the location on the edge of Dachauer Moos, a fen. The roses are alluding to the character of a garden city. Gröbenzell became an independent municipality in 1952.
