Yellow-green, no date given possibly indicating an unofficial use. The county absorbed Bogen county and parts of Mallersdorf county during the 1972 municipal reform. Sources: Linder and Schmidt 2000, arms image from Stadler 1964-1972.

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted in 1968. The arms show in the upper part a symbol for the mainly agricultural character of the district. The wavy bar is the Donau [Danube] river. The lower part shows the arms of the Wittelsbach family, who originated in the area and later became Dukes and Kings of Bavaria (see also the arms of Bavaria).
Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
