Großenseebach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Or, a sinister facing lion rampant Sable, armed and tongued Gules and superimposed by a bendlet sinister Argent; at sinister Gules an eradicated Scotch pine Argent; base Argent parted by a bend wavy Azure.
The dexter half displayed a differentiation of the arms of the Archbishopric of Bamberg, to which the village belonged until 1803. The pine is symbolising the forests around the village- The tinctures red and white are referring to the close parochial relationships to the Bishopric of Würzburg. The blue bend wavy is a representation of the Seebach, the name giving local creek.
