Giebelstadt Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a ram's head Argent armed Or.
The arms are based on the family arms of Knight Florian Geyer, who was born around 1490 in Giebelstadt and killed in 1525 near Rimpar. Actually being a diplomatist of several rulers, he moved to the leader of the "black squad" in the German Peasant's Revolt (1524 - 1526). The family later gained the title of an Imperial Count (German: Reichsgraf) and died out in 1708.
