    My German eyes are not native but after 22 years of speaking the
    language, 13 years of living in Germany, studying German typographic
    history, the contemporary typography and current handwriting use, I have
    come up with this suggestion:

    In my opinion, this is the most uppercase-like realization of uppercase
    ├č that one could come up with. The edgy top and the open counters make
    it absolutely unmistakable with both uppercase B and lowercase ├č.
