Flag

DEFINITION

The mark added to a note stem to indicate the beat division of that note. A flag added to any note will cut the duration of that note in half. For example a quarter note with a flag added to it is one half the duration of the quarter note (i.e., eighth note). If adjacent pitches contain flags, they can be connected by beams for better legibility. One flag denotes an eighth note, two flags equals a sixteenth note, three flags equals a thirty-second note, four flags equals a sixty-fourth note, and five flags equals a one hundred twenty-eighth note.Also [Eng.] flag; [Fr.] crochet (pl. crochets); [Ger.] Fahne or [Ger.] F'hnchen (pl. F'nchen); [It.] coda uncinata (pl. code uncinate) or [It.] Bandiera; [Sp.] Corchete. The curved shaded line extending from the head of a stem used to indicate and eighth or shorter note.<br><br>The curved shaded line extending from the head of a stem used to indicate and eighth or shorter note
