According to the of the county website, the flag is black-yellow-blue, no mention of the arms. I would not be surprised if versions with the arms are also used.

The capital is Weilheim. Both vertical and horizontal versions are legally correct, but we can confirm (through Marcus Schmöger's and my own observations) that the vertical variants are the ones in actual use.

Adopted 21.05.1974, according to Dirk Schönberger's Administrative Divisions of the World website. From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

The arms were granted on May 21, 1974. The arms are a combination of the lion taken from the former arms of Schongau, and the crosier and miner's tools from the former arms of Weilheim.

Literature: Linder and Olzog 1996.
