  • It's like you are lifting(hoisting) flag as pointing a fact. – divy3993 Jun 29 '16 at 6:01
  • Essentially a flag is used to identify something. Take for example a country's flag. Similarly, when you flag a video, you get different options as to what you want to flag it as for e.g. Nudity. Now, this flag can be reviewed by Youtube to remove/unlist the video for Nudity. – Swapnil Borkar Jun 29 '16 at 6:44

I think flag is appropriate though. Like Swapnil Borkar said in his comment: it's used to identify an object as something (error, unappropriate content, etc.)

But then again, it also depends on the context you're asking. For bugs, usually the icon is a bug, for errors it could be an exclamation mark.


You can use this icon: URL:click here for Icon
