From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted on September 7, 1960. The upper part of the arms show a canting red castle (Roten Burg), which forms also part of the arms of the city of Rottenburg. The rose is derived from the arms of the 13th century Counts of Moosburg, who had many estates in the area and who added the title Von Rottenburg to their name. In the late 13th century the possessions were sold to the Dukes of Bavaria.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
