Many clubs in Brazil were originally rowing clubs which later became football clubs. Both Corinthians and Flamengo have aquatic sporting heritage as well as Nautico. This shirt was made t commemorate Nautico's centenary season and as such has the retro design feature of the lace below the collar. Many clubs in Brazil have the state flag on the shirt and Nautico also do this with the flag of Pernambuco on the right sleeve. Once again I am indebted to my friend Bira, in Sao Paulo for sending it to me.
