    It means to flag, or report, something inappropriate on youtube. It could mean language or sexual content or many other things that are inappropriate.

    When a video is "flagged" by someone on YouTube, it blocks it from viewers under the age of 18 from seeing it because the person who "flagged" thought it was inappropriate. When the person who wants to view the video is not signed in, YouTube will ask you them to sign in so they can insure that they're 18 or older.

    People can click that when they think that something is inappropriate in a video to tell Youtube about it.
