Wappen von Groß Sankt Florian

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on October 24, 1994

St. Florian has been an important market borough since at least 1384. In 1887, the name was changed to Groß St. Florian. The use of a seal displaying the patron saint, St. Florian, in his most eminent capacity can, however, only be traced to the 19th century. In 1994, the municipality received the formal grant of the traditionally used seal as a coat of arms.
