The title comes from the name of the island is Queimada, which translates to "burnt" (ed. the name of the english version of the movie is "Burn!" ). This is quite adecuate to the ending (that I'm semi-seing right now), where Brando manages to capture the head of the rebels by burning down the island's forests. The plot evolves around an ex-slave rebellion in an island that had been previously a portuguese colony (for 200 years, as they say in the movie) and is now independent with the help of a british company, which hires Marlon Brando's character. All the "local" names are spanish but they speak portuguese, with a brazilian accent.

In this movie Marlon Brando is a British agent provocateur attempting to foment a slave rebellion against Portugal. A rare and interesting film.

Queimada has a flag, black with a white disc and a white wavy item below the disk, making a symbol resembling a "Q"

[fictional flag of queimada]

Before the first appearence of that blue flag there was a palacian coup d'état and later this flag reappeared flying over a fort, side by side with the UJ, not an adecuate place for a regimental flag. I got to the conclusion that this is probably supposed to be a post-coup flag of Queimada itself...
