From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

The arms were granted on July 7, 1958.

The lower part shows a hops plant, as hops cultivation has been of great importance in the district. The horse symbolises the local legends around the Hallertauer Schimmel horse.

Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
