Coat of arms

Wappen Landkreis Unterallgaeu.svg

The rose in the left of the coat of arms is the symbol of the abbey of Ottobeuren, which ruled the southern part of the district. The fleur-de-lis in the right stands for the Fugger family, who owned several estates in the district. To the bottom are the bavarian diamonds, to symbolize that the area became part of Bavaria in 1814.
