The coat-of-arms, granted 27 May 1964, combines two old Bavarian symbols, the lozenges and the Palatine lion. You can find a picture of this coat-of-arms at Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website. In Oberbayern too there was a discussion about the flag [as in Niederbayern]: the possible stripe combinations were yellow-blue or white-blue-white, but the Bezirk did not like these. Since 1979 the Bezirk tried to get approval for a banner-of-arms, without success. However, since 11 March 1982 the Bezirk Oberbayern uses a vertical flag. The upper, square part is quartered (1 and 4: Sable, a lion rampant Or, armed and crowned Gules; 2 and 3: lozengy Argent and Azure), the lower part is vertically divided in white and blue. Source: Linder 1997 which is available online at the Der Flaggenkurier website. Further information at the Bezirk Oberbayern website (only the recently devised logo is shown, not the coat-of-arms or the flag).

Does this mean that this Bezirk has only got a hanging flag, whereas the other Bezirke have only got horizontal flags? And where does the 11:3 ratio come from?
Santiago Dotor, 30 Jan 2001

The flags of the Bavarian Bezirke are based on Linder 1997 which is available online [but without images] at the Der Flaggenkurier website. He shows six of them as 'normal' horizontal flags, only the one of Oberbayern as a vertical flag. As both Dieter Linder and me live in Munich (the capital of Oberbayern) we both checked the flag of Oberbayern on our own, and Dieter Linder depicted a sketch of it in his article. I made several photos of the Oberbayern flag, and also measured it (it is 440 × 120 cm, i.e. 11:3 proportion). There is no official basis for this proportion; this flag is not even official, as already mentioned. I guess this is just what the flag manufacturer wanted to make. The Bezirk Oberbayern definitely does not use a horizontal 'normal' flag.
