Fixed - now any tag is accepted in "new_colony".By the way, there is a misconception regarding the roles of colonynames.txt and the new_colony entry in countries.txt.
The names in colonynames.txt are always consulted; e.g. if your tag is BRE, it will first check the names in colonynames to see if there are any for BRE (which there are), and, only if those are already used, it will use the new_colony entry of GER to consult the list in countries_special.txt. There it will find that for GER, it should make a name starting with "Neu " and followed by the name of a city owned by BRE.
So the new_colony entries don't actually point to entries in colonynames.txt.
(This is actually what it says in the header of countries.txt.)
