I believe the 301 flag should be used where you want to permanently redirect. As in redirect to a file where the old file no longer exists.

This is done often when you remove old content from a website and rather than serving a 404 page you redirect traffic to a new page.

If the old HTML files will no longer exist and you are sure you will permanently use PHP files, then I would use the 301 flag.

Hope this helps.
