Flag and coat-of-arms adopted 27th June 1958, abolished 30th June 1972
Blue with the arms, adopted 27.06.1958. If I am not mistaken, this is the only official single-colour county flag although several unofficial white flags with flags exist. Roding county was integrated into Cham county in 1973. Sources: Linder and Schmidt 2000, arms image from Stadler 1964-1972.

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted on June 27, 1958. The crown in the chief symbolises the old Royal Estate near Roding, which dates from the 8th century. The lower dexter half shows St. Gallus, the patron saint of the oldest church belonging to the estate. Since 1486 there is a St. Gallus fair in Roding. The lower sinister half shows the arms of Bavaria, as the whole district became part of Bayern around 1200.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
