That is, the Lord Fla-Flu simply used the colors of Vasco and Botafogo. It was the synthesis of the four great ones of the Carioca soccer. He occurs that this nickname was created exactly in 1925, year of the such escrete Fla-Flu. It makes what me to ask where is that the Fla-Flu term appeared first: in the carnival or the soccer? For what I could select, from June, more or less, is that the state elections had started to train to estrear in the Brazilian Championship. The carnival evidently already had passed. Then, the possibility of the Fla-Flu name is great to have if originated in the carnival, does not stop meaning the shock of two teamses, nor to assign agreement of both, but to nickname a person alone. Sire Design will not settle for partial explanations. (According to book of centenarian of the Inhabitant of the state of Rio de Janeiro, in 1937, the Fla-Flu expression made the inverse way, returning from the soccer to the carnival, by means of one marchinha of Haroldo Wolf and J. Cascade.) To finish: Pink Guimares, in its masterpiece Great hinterland: trails, there for as much, speak in ‘ ‘ flaflo of the wind grasping in buritis’ ‘.
The first edition of the book was published in 1956. Then, some influence of the Fla-Flu? Nothing of this. According to Nilce Martins, one is about a onomatopia created for the author, with the direction of blow, racket. Of common with the soccer, therefore, not even the type of the racket.
With Brazilian, he does not have who can: soccer and national identity in Jose Lins of Rego, Mrio Filho and Nelson Rodrigues.
