Biberbach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Gules a church Argent with roofs Azure, beneath parted per pale, at dexter Argent a sinister facing beaver rampant Sable, at sinister Azure a bend wavy Argent.
Above is an image of the local pilgrimage church of the Holy Cross. It is the most important building, constructed by Valerian Brenner (1652 - 1715) on behalf of the Bishop of Augsburg. The construction began in 1684 and ended in 1694. Beaver and creek, symbolised by a bend wavy, are together canting. In the original arms the beaver had been golden, since 1949 he is black.

The arms were granted on 31 March 1836 by King Ludwig I of Bayern and confirmed on 27 April 1949 by the Bavarian State Archive.
