The Uecker ([ˈʏkər]) or Ucker[1] is a Eggesin on the left site. Here the river Randow flows into the Uecker. In Ueckermünde, the Uecker flows into the Szczecin Lagoon, which connects with the Baltic Sea through the three straits Peenestrom, Świna and Dziwna.

The name "Uecker" originated in the Polabian word vikru/vikrus, meaning "fast" or "quick".[2] The Uecker gave its name to the Uckermark historical region and to the two districts Uckermark and Uecker-Randow.
