A flag captain was the commanding officer of an admiral's flagship, a position held primarily by individuals of captain (O-6) rank.

The position was considered to have seniority over other captains assigned to the force in question. The flag captain was traditionally allowed or required to attend flag-level briefings, and had the authority to take command of the fleet in the event the admiral was killed or otherwise incapacitated or unavailable.
