The Flag Taxonomy of OpenHypertextSystems was developed in 1996. The Flag Taxonomy (so called because of its similarity to the Danish national flag) is a framework for comparing and classifying OpenHypertextSystems.

The Flag Taxonomy describes OpenHypertextSystems in terms of the Storage Manager, the Data Model Manager, the Session Manager, the Viewer, and the interfaces between them.

In 1998 the model was extended to describe the interactions between different OpenHypertextSystems using the T3 Protocol.
