Flag adopted on 1 November 1995, according to Dirk Schönberger's Administrative Divisions of the World website, which quotes Ulle 2000 as reference. From Ralf Hartemink's webpage:

The arms were granted on January 22, 1996. The arms combine elements from the arms of the territories to which the district historically belonged: the eagle of the city of Mühlhausen, the lion of the Dukes of Thuringia in the second quarter, in the third quarter the wheel of the State of Mainz and in the fourth quarter the arms of the Principality of Schwarzburg-Sondershausen.
