From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The new arms [were granted] on October 19, 1973 [and] show the lion [from the arms of the Counts of Dillingen] of the old arms, combined with the black lion [arms of the Princes of Hohenstaufen] taken from the arms of the former county Wertingen, and the fleur-de-lis [symbol of St. Mary, the patron saint of the diocese of Augsburg] taken from the arms of the city of Dillingen.
