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?

    1. Right click on any toolbar and choose customize
    2. On the Toolbars tab, click New and drag that toolbar to just below one of the existing toolbars
    3. On the Commands tab, click Actions and drag "red flag", "blue flag", etc. up to the new toolbar
    4. Right click on the flags in the new toolbar and choose "Image and Text"
    5. In the Name field, put in the name for the flag
