At the city website the arms are shown, together with the old arms of Garmisch and of Partenkirchen and a short summary of the history of the town.

Having just spent several days in beautiful Garmisch-Partenkirchen, I saw the flag  hanging on a building in the town, a vertically displayed triband, RWR, with the city CoA near the top. The CoA is argent an eagle displayed sable dimidiating gules a fess argent. Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Heraldry site says these are the former arms of the county (Kreis) of Werdenfels, which became the arms of the combined city when Garmisch and Partenkirchen were merged. The CoA on the flag I saw also had black "diapering" (a purely decorative pattern applied to the field of a heraldic device) on the red areas of the CoA.
