The concept of a red flag definitely predates Twitter and probably emojis, but it’s getting new life through both. A red flag is some opinion or behavior that someone has or does which you should take as a warning about their character. The Red Flag Meme flooded Twitter this month, according to the Mary Sue, who say the trend started on Black Twitter when people started discussing what a red flag is in a romantic partner.

The biggest takeaway for this meme is that everyone has different ideas of what a red flag is and we are all probably exhibiting red flags to someone, somewhere. Definitely to someone on Twitter. See if you are the real red flag below:
