Noisy-le-Grand is a town of 62,000 inhabitants, located to the East of Paris, at the gates of the capital. Composite and full of diversity, it blends a new, decidedly modern and functional town, an old centre that has been completely refurbished in the purest tradition, spacious residential districts and the slopes of the river Marne, a natural, well-preserved fluvial jewel.

Its new town centre, the historic heart of the city, dotted with drinking fountains, rivulets and decorative fountains, has taken on the task of reflecting a strong identity for the town. 

The population of Noisy is young and dynamic and comes together regularly in a whirlpool of highly-colourful, festive and friendly activities. There in an enviable variety of services, leisure and entertainment activities on offer and children are given particular attention.

Being a tourist in Noisy-le-Grand means seeing the Eiffel Tower without having to go to Paris, moving in and out of the different atmospheres and exploring the vineyards, the still unspoiled banks of the River Marne, nature and the relaxation it provides, together with areas of monumental renown, prestigious, contemporary or other discretely nestled architectural forms, a testimony to the talents of bygone epochs.

FROM COAT OF ARMS TO LOGO

During the Revolution period,

  • three walnuts were chosen at the seal of the municipality, in reference to the Latin etymology of the name of Noisy : nux-nucis.
  • the chevron symbolises the size and extension of the municipality, thus completing the name of the town.
  • the crown testifies to the Merovingian occupation of Noisy le Grand, formerly a Royal Villa.
  • finally, the wavy area at the bottom alludes to the location  of the town bordered by the river Marne.

The calligraphy of the initial letters of Noisy le Grand, N and G, combines classical forms with dynamic elements that translate the economic situation of the town, leading service-industry centre and key town to the East of Paris. The “musical connotation” evokes the principles of harmony of Noisy le Grand with its clear aim to form a bridge between Noisy the modern town, and the more traditional Noisy.

A WORD ABOUT THE PAST

It alone bears witness to the Belle Epoque, the time when Parisians used to Noisy by tram to bathe and dance it its ‘guinguettes’, the Marne remembers the tunes played by the accordions, the smell of frying food, fish stews and sips of white wine shared in a good-natured atmosphere.

Noisy-le-Grand appears in 6th century History through Grégoire de Tours, who, in his Histoire des Francs, gave an account of some events that took place in our town and in particular the murder of Clovis in 583. Originally belonging to the royalty, in 1060 Noisy-le-Grand passed into the hands of the Saint-Martin-des-Champs monks.

THE CONTEMPORARY HISTORY OF NOISY

Up to the beginning of the 20th century, Noisy-le-Grand was a peaceful country village whose main activity was agriculture. However, the town experienced remarkable growth between the wars. 

The geographical situation of Noisy enhances its force of attraction. Its proximity to Paris and its road and rail transport services encourage the growth of the town. In addition, its richness lies in the appropriateness of the new districts to the south, the business centre to the east and the residential area to the north. Thus, the Mont d’Est district is 75% dedicated to business buildings. 

The creation of the New Town of Marne-la-Vallée has contributed since 1965 to the development of the town and has put new life into it. Today Noisy-le-Grand is the leading services centre to the east of Paris and numerous prestigious companies and training companies have set up there.

CULTURE AND LEISURE

Noisy le Grand offers a rich cultural, sports and association environment. Festivities such as the Christmas March or Carnival are organised annually. Well-known shows can be seen at the Espace Michel Simon; the Municipal Conservatory, dedicated to Maurice Baquet, a musician who lived in Noisy for over 30 years, provides tuition for an increasing number of musicians.
