It is a black-yellow vertical bicolour with arms shifted to the top. The capital of the county is Donauwörth. Donauwörth County was united during the 1972 municipal reform with Nördlingen County and the (up to then independent) city of Nördlingen to form the present county Donau-Ries. Until 1973 the name of the newly built county had been Nördlingen-Donauwörth.

Donauwörth County Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent a sinister facing panther Gules, at sinister Gules a cross lorraine Argent under a coronet Or.
Meaning:
A large part of the current county historically was the County of Sualafeld. This County was first ruled by the Counts of Graisbach-Lechsgemünd, who in 1342 were succeeded by the Dukes of Bayern. The heraldic panther is taken from the arms of the Counts of Graisbach-Lechsgemünd, the lozenges are the arms of Bayern. Cross and coronet are representing two monasteries: the Imperial Abbey of the Holy Cross in Donauwört and the Cistercian Abbey of Kaisheim.
