As for the meaning of the title, I'm not quite sure, but apparently the print depicts the 16th century warrior Murakami Yoshikiyo (村上義光) recapturing (奪返ス - uba-kaesu) a battle standard (錦旗 - kinki )from his enemies.

I see no reason to believe that the protagonist of the print would be Benkei, as suggested by another website (http://www.jaodb.com/db/ItemDetail.asp?item=39397).
