    Patriotic demonstrations in Tbilisi, capital of the Republic of Georgia on the night of August 8-9, 2008.  These demonstrations could be found at the Russian Embassy, the Parliament, and in Freedom Square at the City Hall.  All demonstrations were peaceful and Georgian flags and displays of patriotism were prominent.
