From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted in 1967 and show in the dexter half the lion of the Pfalz. The district belonged since 1623 to the Kurpfalz [Electoral Palatinate]. The sinister part shows a castle as a canting element (Burg = castle) as well as a tree for the geographical position in the Bayerische Wald (Bavarian forest).
Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
