Brasiliense wears yellow uniforms, hence one of its supporters' associations is named Febre Amarela ("yellow fever"). Brasiliense is one of the few Brazilian teams to wear both yellow and green, which are the main colors of the national flag.
In 2002, the club won the Brazilian Série C, and was promoted to the next year's second division, and finished as that season's Copa do Brasil runner-up. In 2004, the club won the Brazilian Série B, and was promoted for the first time in history to the Brazilian Série A. The club also won the state championship that year. From 2004 to 2008, Brasiliense won five state championships in a row. In 2005, the club finished in last position in the Série A, and was relegated to the next year's second division.
