History


The district was created in 1972 by merging the previous districts Straubing and Bogen and parts of the district Mallersdorf.

Coat of arms

The coat of arms is based on the coat of arms of the former district Straubing. In the bottom are the blue-and-white diamonds as the symbol of Bavaria, as the Wittelsbach dynasty as the rulers of Bavaria originated in the area. Above them the wavy line symbolizes the river Danube. The grain ears in the top part stand of the mostly agricultural structure of the district. The Madonna in the middle was added after the merger with the district Bogen, and stands for the St. Mary pilgrimate in Bogenberg.
