Gornau Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess embowed of Azure and Vert, a naked Goddess proper standing on a winged ball Argent on top of a globe issuant Azure, pouring red blossoms out of her cornucopia Or.
The pattern is known from local seals at least since 1917. It displays Fortuna, probably symbolising the pursuit of luck. As even the municipal webpage doesn´t give any background information, the meaning seems to be unknown.
