Flag Email With Different Colors: Flagging email is an important feature in the Mail app. Flagging emails in the Mail app makes it simple to have certain messages stand out. Whether you flag them for following up or for priority. It also puts those emails in the Flagged folder for easy access in addition to seeing the flagged messages in your list.

With iOS 13 and iPadOS came a cool new flagging option for the Mail app. You can use different colored flags for emails and here’s how.

Add a colored flag

You can flag an email very easily in the Mail app by just tapping and swiping the Flag. But if you want to use different colored flags to organize your messages or distinguish importance, follow these steps:

  • Select an email to open it.
  • Tap the Reply arrow on the bottom right.
  • Tap Flag and when the submenu opens, pick a color.


Once you select a color for that flag, that color will be the new default flag color for your messages. But you can still change the color for a particular email using these steps.

You’ll see each colored flag Flagged mail folder as well as in your Inbox.


Make sure if you use the swipe option to flag an email, you can still change its color after the fact using the above steps.


Here’s all about Flag Email With Different Colors. I don’t know about you, but I use different colored flags on my Mac to spot certain emails quicker. So this is a great new feature for the Mail app that came with iOS 13 and iPadOS. What do you think of it? Give your valuable feedback in a comment section below!
