Niederbayern district

The district Niederbayern (Lower Bavaria) comprises areas to the south and east of the Danube in south-eastern Bavaria, including the cities of Landshut, Passau and Straubing.

The coat-of-arms (since 24th September 1957) shows the Bavarian lozenges and the [heraldic] panther from the arms of the Spanheim family. The unofficial flag is horizontally divided red-white with the arms in the center. There had been quite some discussion on the flag topic. The Bezirk was not happy with the suggested simply striped flag (communal flags in Bavaria have to be of two or three stripes, with or without the arms) and wanted to have something more distinctive. In 1961 a banner-of-arms was in the discussion, but also rejected by the Bavarian Hauptstaatsarchiv (Main State Archives). Later on the Bezirk obviously decided to use the first suggested flag (red-white), but without the approval by the Ministry of the Interior.

Later on I obtained information from the Bezirk to clarify the question of how the flag actually looks like, especially if it is used as a normal horizontal flag or as a hanging flag (Banner). The flag is used as a hanging flag of approximate proportion 3:1.
