    Landshut County Banner

    According to Linder and Schmidt 2000 Landshut uses an unofficial flag which cannot become official since it does not conform to the guidelines of the state archives: a hanging white flag with a row of blue lozenges at the top and bottom and the coat of arms in the centre. The flag is drawn according to the proportions of a sketch, which Erich Dieter Linder got from the county offices.

    Landshut County Coat of Arms

    Shield parted per fess embattled of Gules and Argent, chief lozengy of Argent and Azure.
    Meaning:
    The chief displays the arms of Bayern. These are identical to the arms of the Wittelsbach kin, who adopted the arms from the Counts of Bogen in 1242. Here the lozenges indicate three historical items: Ludmilla of Bogen founded a Cistercian nunnery in Seligenthal in the county. Furthermore Landshut city was founded by the Wittelsbach kin and a branch of the family named themselves after Landshut. Finally the lozenges indicate the fact that the county is still part of Bayern. The main field displays the arms of the Counts of Preysing, who were one of the most important noble families in the county.

    Rottenburg County Coat of Arms

    Shield Argent an embattled castle gate Gules masoned Sable, base Gules charged with a heraldic rose Argent seeded Gules.
    Meaning:
    The shield displays a canting red castle (German: Rote Burg), which is also part of the arms of the city of Rottenburg. The rose is taken from the arms of the 13th century Counts of Moosburg, who had many estates in the area and who added Rottenburg to their name since 1257. In the late 13th century the possessions were sold to the Dukes of Bayern.

The other part of the current county was ruled by the Counts of Kraiburg, whose arms are shown in the main field of the shield. They were also succeeded by the Wittelsbch kin around 1250.
