Nginx.conf -> @ symbol (at sign)

Can anyone tell me the functionality of the @ symbol in the following
statement?

location @joomla {
rewrite ^(.*)$ /index.php?q=$1 last;
}

(from http://wiki.nginx.org/NginxJoomla)

Thanks

No, it’s “named location”. It is internal, but not only.

Basically, it’s location that preserves original uri on internal
redirects via error_page or try_files.
