Can I change the names of the flags in Microsoft Outlook from colors to some other term of my choice?

Rather than having red, blue, green flags, I'd like to have the flags represent some concept, like a "grocery flag" or a "health flag".... is it possible to modify the name of the flag from a color to some other term of my choosing?
