Banco Nacional was a bank from Brazil. It was taken over by Unibanco in 1995.

The Nacional brand is better known as main sponsor of Ayrton Senna during most of his racing career in Formula One (1984-1994).

The TV Globo's popular news program Jornal Nacional was originally named after the name of the bank with respect to the main sponsor.[1][2]
