The coat of arms was approved on 15 September 1955 and confirmed on 7 June 1977. The eagle and sticks are taken from the arms of the Lords of Waldeck from Hohenwaldeck, who built their estate around the Schliersee lake. They died out in 1483 and were succeeded by the Lords (later Counts) of Maxlrain. The lower part shows the water lily leaves and waves taken from the arms of the Tegernsee Abbey, which owned most of the Western part of the county until 1803.
