Flag and coat-of-arms adopted 10 December 1975
Green-yellow stripes, 10.12.1975. The capital of the county is Aichach. During the 1972 municipal reform, Friedberg county was merged with Aichach county (of Oberbayern district) to form the new county Aichach-Friedberg. Sources: Linder and Schmidt 2000, arms image from Linder and Olzog 1996.

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted on December 10, 1975.
The arms combine symbols from the old arms; the [canting] oak leaf from the arms of Aichach, the cross [for the possessions of the bishops of Augsburg] from the arms of Friedberg. The chief of Bavaria was part of both old arms.
Literature: [presumably Linder and Olzog 1996].
