From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The new arms were granted on June 27, 1974. The panther in the new arms is taken from the old arms of Griesbach and Vilshofen. The wolf for Passau and the lozenges for Bavaria were continued in the new arms.
Literature: [presumably Linder and Olzog 1996].
