Coat-of-arms adopted 1st October 1974
Dingolfing county merged with Landau county during the 1972 municipal reform to form Dingolfing-Landau county.

White-red stripes, used unofficially (i.e. without approval from the relevant authorities). After its foundation in 1973 the county was known for a time under the name Untere Isar. The seat of the county is Dingolfing. 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 October 1, 1974. The arms are a combination of elements from the two older arms. The chief with the arms of Bavaria is taken from both older arms. The lion is taken from Landau, the bars from Dingolfing.
Literature: [presumably Linder and Olzog 1996].
