That is not a stupid question at all. A flag is basicly an attention getter. When you see geese flying you get your flag and flag it like a goose until they get closer and are heading your way (then I start to call). I flag them until about 100 yards away. I also like to flag when they are going away from me either after a shot ar they have already flared. It works well when you use it correctly.
