It is red-white vertical bicolour with the arms in a white bannerhead.
Source: The banner was on display in the town together with the banner of the county and the partner cities of the town. Fürstenfeldbruck is the seat of Fürstenfeldbruck County.
Shield Gules with base Azure, a triangular throughout bridge Argent with guardrail Or and a Latin cross Or in its centre, chief lozengy of Argent and Azure.
The village of Bruck (meaning "bridge") received town rights in 1306 and became a possession of the Fürstenfeld Abbey in 1342. The name hence became Fürstenfeldbruck. The arms showed a bridge with three crosses above the bridge. The current arms are based on an image by Mielich and Apian in a Roll of Arms from 1565. The bridge is a canting element, the cross probably indicates the Abbey and the chief shows the arms of Bayern.

The first arms were granted in 1813 by King Max I Joseph of Bayern. The current arms were approved in 1936 .
