What kind of response can these four verses of animal fury and savagery evoke. The young man plucked up French Jacobinism! Vengeance!

The presence of elements of a conspiracy against Pushkin with the aim of eliminating him (from St. Petersburg and in general) is evidenced by many facts and artifacts of history. The most illustrative and instructive is the so-called sound. "November libel of 1836" - anonymous = double envelope or envelope with attachment = "Diploma of the Kokyu Order" (cuckolds). This malicious purposeful action on November 4 is evidence of the obvious, without conspiracy fictions and bells and whistles = the Congregation for Defamation worked against the Pushkin family with experienced schemers.

Of course, if not for the public behavior of Pushkin's wife, who was seriously carried away by the lieutenant of the regiment of cavalry guards of the Court of the House of Romanov and responded with open reciprocity to his stormy courtship, the poet's conflict with society would not have taken on such an irreconcilable character and tragic. But we are now interested in something else - the constructors of this conflict, its schemers-intriguers and screenwriters.

And the other day I came across a military order - the Kulm cross and its commemorative version called the Kulm Iron Cross 1812-1814. 200 years ":

and his parent was the prototype - officer and soldier Kulm crosses, which have their parent - the Prussian Iron Cross

And then I remembered the wax seal that was on the outer envelope with the "Pushkin" Kokyu Diploma: Both the jubilee cross for the Battle of Kulm and the seal of the diploma have one common symbol in the center = the letter A

Information: The Battle of Kulm - the defeat of 17-18 (29-30 August) 1813 by the Russian-Prussian-Austrian troops of the French corps of General Vandam near Kulm in Bohemia. The battle lasted two days. On the first day, August 29, the Russian guard under the command of Count Osterman-Tolstoy held back at the cost of heavy losses the onslaught of the three times superior forces of the French corps of Vandam. On the second day, August 30, General Vandam's French corps was himself surrounded by allied forces and was forced to surrender.

The symbol "A" with an imperial crown on a commemorative cross (the combatants did not have this) indicates that the Russian army was once again led by the Emperor of Russia, Alexander the Blessed. Well, this is understandable: as the army retreated from the Grande Armée of Emperor Napoleon, our Scythian emperor withdrew from the leadership of military operations ... it did not smell like a laurel wreath ... But when this Grand Arme froze in Russia and ran back and began to finish it off, our emperor again on a white horse in the laurels of the liberator of Europe.

His imperial initial A on the cross for Kulm is understandable = this is Emperor A who sent his personal regiments - Izmailovsky, Preobrazhensky and Semenovsky and a guard led by Osterman-Tolstoy - to the rescue of the dying troops near Bohemian Kulm.

The origin of the Russian jack

Guys appeared in the Russian Empire in 1658 - after Peter the Great visited the English kingdom during the Great Embassy. The flag was supposed to symbolize the power and greatness of the young Russian fleet, which is why its appearance was chosen in the likeness of the jack of the most powerful naval union - Britain and Scotland, which we examined in detail above.

On the Russian jack, in contrast to the symbol of union, the cross of St. Andrew the First-Called dominated over the cross of St. George, and not vice versa. This was done because it was from St. Andrew, according to Peter, that Russia acquired baptism. Also, this cross had a symbolic meaning - at the time of the creation of the jack, the state already had access to the four seas. That is why the first Russian order of St. Andrew the First-Called was approved in the form of the same four-sided oblique cross.

This nasal flag, which became the prototype of the modern jack of the Russian Navy, began in 1701. His image was also used as a fortress standard for forts and other seaside objects.

Guys of the Russian Federation

Let us briefly review the most modern part of the history of the Russian bow flag of ships:

  • In 1992, Decree of the President of the Russian Federation No. 798 introduced a new type of naval jack - a red cloth with the St. Andrew's and St. George's Cross, which was once invented by Emperor Peter the Great. The difference was in one thing - the stripes of the cross of St. Andrew the First-Called were not originally blue, but blue.
  • In 2000, the historical color version of the main cross - blue - was returned to the jack of the Russian Navy.

The border ships of the Russian Federation use a slightly modified jack - its white edging is three times wider.
