Großbeeren Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess; above Argent, at dexter an oak twig Vert with acorns of the same, at sinister a cross patty Sable cotised Argent and Sable; beneath Azure a swan combatant Argent armed Gules, on dexter edge nine small bezants.
Meaning:
The oak twig and the cross, also known as iron cross, are referring to the battle of Großbeeren, which happened on 23 August 1813, when allied forces of Prussia and Russia defeated the French occupants and there Saxonian allies. The swan probably belongs to a local family of noblemen, but I can't trace it.

Depending on source the swan is signifying some kind of creation myth (the town was founded where the people saw a swan snapping after wild berries, the bezants in blazon), or the coat of arms of the Behren/Berne kin, who lived and ruled there from the 14th to the 19th century. At least in my copy of Siebmacher (1605) , the coat of arms is blue with the swan but without the berries. Other editions my have added them.

The arms were approved on 20 December 1999.
