TEAM Uniao Bandeirante SEASON(S) Early 2000s?

A "Bandeirante" was a colonial period scout, explorer (and slaver!) in Brazilian history and I assume encompasses something of the frontier spirit for the modern peoples of Brazil as there re various football clubs named after them including Bandeirante EC whose shirts you can also see on the site. Sadly Uniao Bandeirante are no longer operating having gone out of business in 2006. The hailed from the town of Bandeirante in Parana state and didn't really leave much of a heritage apart from some mid level state championship titles. I don't know enough about Brazilian history to know if there's a correlation between the name Bandeirante and the seemingly common black and white colour scheme.
