The flail (from Latin "flagellum", "a whip"; in French, "fléau") was a main agricultural tool before the invention of the threshing machine. Wild wheats and their relative are self-threshing, but domesticated wheats are no longer. This prevents grain loss before and, mostly, during harvest, but requires a specific threshing tool.

Given the importance of agriculture in the past and the importance of flails in agriculture, I am surprised to see flails shown on so few flags. The only example we seem to have on the FOTW website is Opatovice (Czech Republic).
