Flagstones are a buildable floor type. It can be made out of any of the 5 stone types available in-game: Sandstone, Granite, Limestone, Slate or Marble.

Acquisition

Constructing flagstone of any type requires Stonecutting to be researched. Each tile requires Stuff 4 Stuff (Stony), 500 ticks (8.33 secs).

Flagstone can also be generated when you create a colony on a tile with stone road on it.

Summary

Flagstone provides no beauty modifier, and cleaning filth on it takes only 80% the work. It is non-flammable and does not penalize walk speed.

Unlike other floors, when removed with the Remove Floor command, it provides no resources.

Analysis

Flagstone shares a similar role to concrete or paved tile as a relatively fast, non-flammable, beauty-ignorant flooring. It takes 5x the work to lay flagstone than concrete, while stone blocks take a lot of time to craft. Flagstone has a useful niche if you have a steel shortage, or a stone block excess.

Both flagstone and stone tiles cost the same amount of stone. The latter takes 1,100 ticks (18.33 secs) of work to construct, over double the work, for +1 beauty per tile. Flagstone is more useful outside, where beauty doesn't matter as much, and stone tiles inside.
