Georg Weig, SVD (Chinese name: Wei Changlu) (December 14, 1883—October 3, 1941) was a German prelate of the Roman Catholic Church. He served as Prefect of the Apostolic Prefecture of Qingdao (March 18, 1925—June 20, 1928) and Vicar Apostolic of the Apostolic Vicariate of Qingdao. Bishop Weig's Chinese name was Wei Changlu.
St. Michael's Cathedral was built and consecrated during Bishop Weig's reign, and he is entombed there. The inscription over his tomb is written in Latin and Chinese, and reads:

His tomb is damaged, having been defaced during the Cultural Revolution, and this is evident from the photo.
