Fluminense Football Club is a sports club based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Founded in the beginning of the 20th century as a single-sport institution, Fluminense is today an umbrella organization for several teams in more than 16 different sport activities. The most popular endeavor of Fluminense, however, continues to be football. This article concerns itself with Fluminense solely as a professional football club. Known as the Tricolor Carioca due to the nickname of the city's population and their maroon, green and white kit, Fluminense is the oldest-surviving club founded specifically for football in the state of Rio de Janeiro. In the 1920s the club was considered an 'entity of federal public utility' by Decree nº 5044 on October 28, 1926, published by the Diário Oficial da União (Brazilian government's official gazette) on November 10, 1926, after having won their first international competition (the Vulcain Cup) in 1928. Fluminense has contributed the fifth-most players to the Brazil national team. The Rio de Janeiro government decreed November 12, 'Fluminense Football Club Day' by law on September 27, 2007. With the largest number of Campeonato Carioca titles in the 20th century (28), the club is known as the "champion of the century".
