Flag adopted 21st May 1974
According to the of the county website, the flag is black-yellow-blue, no mention of the arms. I would not be surprised if versions with the arms are also used.

Adopted 21.05.1974, according to Dirk Schönberger's Administrative Divisions of the World website. From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted on March 6, 1964. The arms show two horse-heads combined in a chess piece. This unusual charge is derived from the arms of the Lords of Hesselohe, who were judges in Weilheim in the middle ages until 1486. The crosier symbolises the many important monasteries in the district. The lower part of the arms symbolise the important coal mining in the area. The colours are derived from the colours of the arms of the estates of Pähl and Weilheim.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1971.
