With effect from January 1st 1972 the municipalities Hausmehring, Watzling and Schwindkirchen (formerly Landkreis Mühldorf) and parts of the municipalities Eibach (see also Taufkirchen) and Schiltern (see also Sankt Wolfgang) have been incorporated into Dorfen. Since May 1st 1978 also the municipalities Tegernbach (emerged on January 1st 1972 from Grüntegernbach and Wasentegernbach) and Zeilhofen belong to Dorfen. Grüntegernbach, Hausmehring and Zeilhofen had used their one arms, that have become obsolete with the merger. In the incorporated villages Schwindkirchen and Wasentegernbach there are efforts towards own "village arms".
The seal of the municipality Schwindkirchen showed the lesser Bavarian arms until December 31st 1971.
Foundation of the arms:
Village arms are not intended in the Bavarian Municipal Law. Thus there was no formal adoption procedure. The arms has been used since 1994.
