In Super Mario 3D World, I've noticed that my levels will show various flags upon completion of a level.

What confuses me, though, is that some levels have a Gold flag, while others seem to only have a Red flag.

What do these different colors mean?

The different colors are showing how "good" you finished the level.

  • You get a golden flag if you jump to the very top of the flagpole at the end of the level
  • Green star above the flag means that you have all green stars collected in that level (3 stars every level)
  • Red flag means Mario was first to the pole, pink mean Princess Peach got there first, green is Luigi, blue is Toad and light blue for Rosalina

Ooh, so the red flag means I didn't get the very top of the flag pole? –  Fluttershy Jan 3 at 16:08

@RayofCommand - Red flag means Mario was first to the pole, pink mean Princess Peach got there first, green is Luigi, blue is Toad and light blue for Rosalina. –  Brian Jan 3 at 20:59

Also note that, after most of the postgame, the green stars will turn gold if you've completed the level with all the characters. –  michaelb958 Feb 22 at 9:32
