    Modern rendition of the flag and coat of arms of the short-lived Riograndense Republic (also known as the Piratini Republic), a breakaway state formed during the early days of the Empire of Brazil in the nineteenth century. The nation, which roughly encompassed the territory now comprising the southern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, existed from 1836 to 1845.
