From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted on October 3rd, 1963. The background of the arms is the arms of Bavaria, as the main part of the county was part of Bavaria. Until 1268 part of the area was part of a imperial estate in Lechrain. In the estate armies on their way to Italy assembled. The imperial eagle symbolises this imperial estate. The cross is a reminder of the large possessions of the bishops of Augsburg in the area.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
