立flag

Meaning:

“立” means to “erect,” and “flag” is the English word “flag.” “Flag” here is a computer software jargon which means a variant will determine the future course of development, especially in games. First used by animation fans on streaming sites like bilibili.com, the term refers to a signal or omen for something that is sure to happen. For example, if a character in a show says to his girlfriend that he will return to marry her once the war is over, it’s almost certain that he will die in a battle and never make it back home. It’s also used generally to imply that whenever one makes a loud announcement of his or her plans, the opposite may happen. It’s kind of similar to “jinx.”

Example:

A: 明年就毕业了,你有什么打算?

Míngnián jiù bìyè le ,nǐ yǒu shénme dǎsuàn?

What’s your plan after graduation next year?

B: 我在准备各种考试,一定要上常春藤名校念到博士。

Wǒ zài zhǔnbèi gèzhǒng kǎoshì ,yīdìng yào shàng chángchūnténg míngxiào niàn dào bóshì 。

I’m preparing for all kinds of exams and I’m determined to graduate with a doctor’s degree from one of the Ivy League universities.

A: 努力就好,还是不要立flag吧。

Nǔlì jiù hǎo ,háishì búyào lì flag ba 。

Just work hard and keep it quiet. Don’t jinx yourself.
