Antônio Flávio Aires dos Santos (born 5 January 1987 in Brejinho de Nazaré, Tocantins) is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a striker for AD São Caetano, being on loan from Swedish side AIK. Antônio Flávio is more commonly known as Flávio by the fans and commentators.

Flávio started his career in Goianense (from 2003 2005), then he went on to Andraus (2006). In 2007, he was signed to Santo André and he was put on their professional squad a year later.

Flávio was in 2009 spotted by AIK Fotboll representatives and was later signed to the Swedish club. Flávio quickly formed a good partnership with Argentinian striker Iván Obolo. Flávio's first goal for the Solna club came against Gothenburg team Häcken. He added another two goals to his tally when he striked two goals against Stockholm rivals Djurgårdens IF. His celebration became controversial after he tore off his shirt, revealing an identical match shirt under it. He also caused some controversy post-game when a t-shirt adorned with"Hata Göteborg" (Hate Gothenburg) was given to him. Flávio later said that he didn't know what the phrase meant, he thought it had something to do with the fight for first place.

On the 1st of November 2009, Flávio won Allsvenskan with AIK after scoring the equaliser against IFK Göteborg. AIK went on to win the game 2-1 away at Ullevi.
