Artur Reis (Amazonas)

House Flag of Artur Reis (Brazil) image by Jorge Candeias

Artur Reis is a person's name. The flag is a green and red vertical bicolor with a white lozenge over all, charged with the initials of the company in black letters, in a fancy font. The flag looks like a merge of the flags of Portugal and Brazil, though I don't know if that's intentional.

Augusto Chaves Riça (Manaus)

House Flag of Augusto Chaves Riça image by Jorge Candeias

The flag is yellow, with a star with a big white border. The star seemed to me to be very dark blue, but I might be wrong in this: it might be black instead.

Irmãos Rufino (Manaus)

House Flag of Irmãos Rufino image by Jorge Candeias

Rufino Brothers, Rufino being, obviously, a surname. The flag is a red-white-red triband whith the hoistmost half of the white stripe occupied by a dark blue panel. It's also pretty obvious that the inspiration for this flag came from that of Amazonas.
