Description

The flag of this county is special — it is the only official exception to the stripe design rule among the Bavarian counties. The flag is a banner, a lozengy of white and blue, with the arms in the top of the banner, and was granted on 08.04.1974. My image corresponds in proportions and number and position of lozenges to a photo of an actual flag.

The lozengy of white and blue was originally the arms of the counts of Bogen and later assumed by the Wittelsbachs, the long-time rulers of Bavaria. The Bavarian state archives held the opinion that the importance of Bogen for the history of the symbols of Bavaria justified making an exception from the normal flag rules. Sources: Linder and Schmidt 2000, arms image from Linder and Olzog 1996.

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

The arms were granted on April 8, 1974. The arms are mainly based on the old arms of Straubing, but in the upper part a figurine of the Holy Madonna is added. This symbolises the important Maria pilgrimage to the Bogenberg in the district, and was taken from the arms of the former Bogen county.

Literature: Stadler 1964-1972, Linder and Olzog 1996.
