Brazilian sports are organized into federations at the state level with these federations grouped into confederations at the national level [but see the sailing and motorboating federation below]. Most of them seem to have flags, many stipulated in their organizing statutes.

Brazilian Aquatic Sports Confederation

Confederação Brasileira de Desportos Aquáticos

On the website of the Confederação Brasileira de Desportos Aquáticos I found the description of their flag:

The flag of the CBDA will have the colors flag blue*, light blue, gold, and white, containing pictures of swimming, synchronized swimming, water polo and diving athletes, the initials CBDA and the word BRASIL.

* I have no idea what shade of blue this is.

As far as I know, the bicolor square on this flag is supposed to represent (or at least to have been inspired by) an actual flag used in orienteering campaigns. It is thus a flag with a flag on it.

Brazilian Federation of Sailing and Motorboating

Above, I wrote that the national organizing bodies for Brazilian sports are called "confederations" and the state organizing bodies "federations." Apparently, for boating at least, this is not correct. The national body governing sailing and motorboating is the Federação Brasileira de Vela e Motor (Brazilian Federation of Sailing and Motorboating. The FBVM statute, at the federation's official website, describes the federation flag as blue with the federation symbol in white in the upper hoist. The burgee (flâmula) is described as the same design, but triangular. The statute describes the symbol as "white with a blue circle with equidistant white stars, representing the affiliated institutions, along its periphery, and a white anchor in the middle." The website shows this emblem with the name of the federation outside the circle of stars and a very thin white circle between the stars and the anchor, but I've drawn the flag according to the statute.
