weird Chinese traffic sign

China is known for mangled English signage, but as a pictogram this still defies interpretation...

I have seen this sign in Beijing Province and asked a Chinese friend of mine what it meant. He didn't know but looked it up after I showed this blog post to him. The sign means "do not enter" for vehicles transporting flammable or explosive items.

He and I both agreed it's a very confusing sign!

Thanks for the enlightenment. It looks like "do not light a firework on top of your car".
