    Yeah, right. There really is a "c" before "k"in that word. And it is namely "-bUrg" at the end. Lieb' Vaterland mag ruhig sein! German language is in reliable hands! Here is the Mecklenburg braid, and the unknown one on three different underlays of red, dark blue, and green. Even if we presume the yellow thread is simply missing, the colour sequence is different anyway: red-blue-yellow and blue-red. So this can hardly be Mecklenburg-Schwerin. What is it then? Some kind of fake? Compare the braids - the unknown one looks too fresh and new.
