According to Falko Schmidt the arms on the Germersheim flags should be on the central yellow stripe only.

Stefan Schwoon, 4 February 2001

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

The arms were granted on February 16, 1976. The district historically belonged to the Pfalz and the State of Speyer. This is symbolised in the arms with the lion of the Pfalz and the cross of Speyer. The wavy bar symbolises the Rhine river. The escutcheon shows the arms of the city of Germersheim.

Literature: Linder and Olzog 1996.
