Subject: [Cz-L] Interpretation

Can my great grandfather’s profession in Cz be clarified for me but more
importantly what does the insignia mean?

I am copying this from a book/publication/page titled at the top of the
page: 'Herzogtum Bukowina' and this says under his listing:

"Flinker, (Jakob), MDr., Kais. R., Stadtphysikus, (then an insignia/iron
cross with crown on the top) = Czernowitz”

Thanks for shedding any light on this. This publication is clearly a mine of
info for Cz researchers, found on but must be elsewhere or even
on our own Cz site? Is this a business directory? He died in 1914.

All the best from Downunder,
