The Order of Merit of the State of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is the highest order of merit awarded by the State of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania . It was created on April 23, 2001 by the law on the Order of Merit of the State of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (LOrdensG MV) and was first awarded on June 1, 2002. The award is made by the Prime Minister "in recognition of special services to the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and its people". The Prime Minister, the President of the State Parliament and, for their area of ​​responsibility, the members of the State Government are entitled to make proposals. Anyone who has suggestions for the award of the medal can, however, turn to the nominees. If a holder of the order proves to be unworthy of the honor through his behavior or if such behavior is subsequently known, the Prime Minister can revoke the award.
