    If it is Estonian , is that a different symbol of an L under an inverted V?
    The symbol on the grenades in question are either made or loaded in Russia by Krasnozavodsk Chemical Factory.
    This factory loaded mortars, grenades , flares etc.

    Triangle ^ is marking for plant No 11 or Krasnozavodsky chemical plant (Краснозаводский химический завод or КХЗ, on russian language). This plant was producing fuyes UYRGM and UYRGM'2 and also filling grenades RGD-5 etc.
