Gilberto Flores (born July 5, 1983 in Toledo, Brazil) is a Brazilian soccer midfielder.

Gilberto was signed by the MetroStars from Brazilian club Ginásio Pinhalense de Esportes Atléticos after impressing in La Manga Cup in 2004. Flores has struggled to see playing time in his time with the MetroStars – although he has been relatively impressive in his brief playing time, he has struggled both with injuries that have kept him out much of the year, and with the difficult task of breaking into a very talented MetroStars midfield.

Injured in a game against the Revolution in 2004, Gilberto could not recover his form and was released by the MetroStars in June 2005. Ironically, he was picked up by the same New England team that he suffered his injury against. He was released by New England in November 2005 after appearing in just one match, in the US Open Cup.
