The order of the colours is far from clear: I have seen red-white as well as white-red flags, with the arms. Although approved in 1994, it was already in unofficial use before that date.

Neumarkt - Sankt Veit Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess into silver (= white) over red. Above is a blue demi-panther issuant spitting a red flame. The field below is empty.
Meaning:
Seals from 1505 already display this pattern in a targe. There exists a coloured painting from the same year, thus it can be concluded that the arms were granted in 1505. It is the symbol belonging to the Counts of Kraiburg-Ortenburg, a branch line of the Palatine Counts of Spanheim, rulers of the area until 1248. As the meaning had been forgotten, the panther was also depicted as a griffin or since 1819 as a Bavarian lion. The field below had been lozengy in the 16th century.

The flag was approved on 31 March 1994, probably by district government of Oberbayern.
