Presentation of Bizovac

Bizovac is located about 20 km east of Osijek. It has 5,000 inhabitants in eight settlements, just under a half of the number in the town of the same name. The municipality is famous for its health spas, rich in sulphur (Bizovačke Toplice), and is a popular resort for the inhabitants of Osijek. The festival "Old Sports Olympics" has been held there yearky for almost 40 years in the village of Brodanci.

Coat of arms of Bizovac

The coat of arms is "Gules a fount forming four spots issuing from a masoned well argent on a base vert between two elder trees vert flowered argent".
The well and water bursts refer to the thermal spas. The elder trees are native in the area and elderberries are considered healthy; they are used to make excellent juice and are also prepared fried). Although elder sounds somewhat similar to Bizovac in Croatian (bazga), I do not think that the elder trees were chosen for canting reasons.
