Großostheim Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Or a demi-he-goat salient issuant Sable, beneath Sable three trefoils Argent ordered 2:1.
The goat is taken from the arms of the Schad kin and appeared on local seals, probably from the 17th century. The trefoils had been a favourite charge in many village seals. In the approval was mentioned that the trefoils were symbolising an agricultural change, when the cultivation of wine was replaced by the cultivation of clover.
