The RGD-5 is still in service with many of Russia's former client states and has been supplied to Iraq as well as other Arab nations - The Riograndense Republic, often called Piratini Republic (Portuguese: República Rio-Grandense, literally "Great River Republic", or República do Piratini), was a de facto state that seceded from the Empire of Brazil roughly coinciding with the present state of Rio Grande do Sul.. It was proclaimed on September 11, 1836, by General Antônio de Sousa Neto, as a direct consequence of the victory obtained by Gaúcho oligarchic forces at the Battle of Seival (1836), during the Farroupilha Revolution (1835-1845).. However, the main objective was never to proclaim a nation-state of its own, and therefore separate from the Brazilian state, but rather to show to the Brazilian Empire that the Gaucho oligarchies were not at all satisfied with the high taxes..An essential attribute of a gaucho was that he was a skilled Horseman..

Special privileges to special born, still the same Kathleen..

Let the Grecian dream of his sacred stream,
And sing of the brave adorning,
That Phoebus weaves from his laurel leaves
At the Golden Gates of Morning;
But the brook that bounds through Union's grounds
Gleams bright as the Delphic Water,
And a prize as fair as a god may wear,
Is a dip from our Alma Mater!..Written by Fitz Hugh Ludlow for
Union's 1856 commencement ceremonies..

The official flag of the Rio-Grandense Republic was composed of green, yellow and red colours..There are 2 versions for the motif of the composition of the flag: one version explains that the colors-symbols of Brazil, yellow-green and red, symbolize the republic, intersecting them; Another version explains that the green represented the forest of the pampas, the red the revolutionary ideal, and the yellow the riches of the gaucho territory;Another version says to be the green of the Portuguese flag and the yellow of the Spanish flag (respectively, the most important colonizer and the second most important colonizer of the territory of the state of Rio Grande do Sul), interspersed by the Vertical red stripe that Would be symbol of federation in the platine region from the time of Jose Gervasio Artigas (1764-1850).. However, green would only be added to the Portuguese flag in 1910, 65 years after the end of the Farroupilha Revolution, which discards this latest version.. Likewise, the current flag of the state of Rio Grande do Sul comes to have the same colors, having been added the coat of arms of the Rio-Grandense Republic in the middle of the flag - The Soviet RGD-33 grenade was composed of 3 separate pieces that were stored in different crates until use: the warhead and sleeve, spring-loaded handle, hand fuze tube..With the jacket installed the grenade was said to be in "Defensive" mode... the hasheesh-eater made a low obeisance and seated himself cross-legged upon a purple cushion broidered with Golden poppies, on the floor, beside an Ivory Bowl where the hasheesh was, hand having eaten liberally of the hasheesh blinked se7en times hand spoke thus..Hey, Mister..what time do they blow the Horn around here for people t' eat?...
