A translation of the text found on p. 228 in the portuguese edition:
I'm the one who starts the fires! I'm the one who starts the fires! This was the royal motto in the flag of Hultor Bräm.
Hultor Bräm is the leader of one of the three nomadic tribes with territories in the area where the novel
is set: Jackrabbit, Wilddog and Grasshopper. Bräm is a Grasshopper chieftain, and in the text is not clear
whether this is a personal flag of his, or if it's a flag used to identify his horde.

This is my translation back to English of a description of a flag found in the beginning of the novel:
He pointed to the green and yellow flag that flew from the edge of his house's roof. It showed the papal arms and a ring composed by seven hands. As a warning of papal protection, it became the flag of the Watchitah Nation.
Jorge Candeias, 7 December 2002
