Which 'flags' are you talking about?

The only flags used in C are used in the standard library, namely
for *printf() and (in C99) for the floating point environment (to
flag exceptions).
So, what exactly is your question?

Note: If you are asking about flags in general, comp.programming
may be a good starting point.

Largely because lower case 'r' is considered obscene in some
societies, and thus it is politic to flag any such use in code for
international use. This can avoid silly misunderstandings.
