"Flag" is singer-songwriter James Taylor's tenth album. Released in 1979, it included songs from Taylor's music score to Studs Terkel and Stephen Schwartz's Broadway musical, "Working".

The album was not particularly well received, but it did provide a hit in Taylor's cover version of the Gerry Goffin/Carole King composition, "Up on the Roof".
