It could mean many possible things depending on the court system in question. In my experience a "flag" refers to a quick means of identification of the "status" of the case by means of the color of the case folder or the color of a memo attached to the case jacket (i.e.: a "flag"). For instance: a red jacket (or "flag") might mean an "open/active case - a blue memo slip (or "flag") might stand for a closed case, or a green case file (or "flag") might mean a closed case. These quick codes/flags relieve the necessity of having to open each case jacket and reading the contents to determine the status of the case it contains. Of course, this phrase might mean something entirely different in another court system.
