Keyboard layouts in OS X

As I type in both English and Brazilian Portuguese, I tried to find out how to get a menu bar item that would let me quickly switch between the two languages.
Actually this is very simple as explained here:

System Preferences >> International >> Input menu (Tab)

Then select the languages you want to appear in the menu bar icon.
Simple, yes, but doesn't quite work. In particular, Brazilian Portuguese, although the Brazilian flag shows up, doesn't differ at all from the English keyboard layout.
Luckily the Portuguese layout does the trick although it's not quite the same as the Brazilian layout -- but close enough.
