What is it
Hi, this patch was in a small group of TR items I bought. I dont think it is from the TR period, but have no idea where to go from there. Red lion walking on 2 hammers? M.T.V. ?? tried to look up on computer, but just came up with hundreds of music television related sites. Anyone got any ideas?? Thanks in advance.

The design is based on the former coat-of-arms for Hamborn (used in several variants after Hamborn was granted town rights in 1911 and until it was incorporated into the city of Duisburg in 1929). The red lion was taken from the coat-of-arms of Alexander von Horst, one of the last abbots of the former monastery at Hamborn, while the hammers symbolize mining.)
The patch is surely for the sports club MTV Union Hamborn 02:
Amazing identification - well done! NH
