A flow contains the instructions for workflow logic, including the @flow and @task functions that define the work of your workflow.

The Flows page in the Prefect UI lists any flows that have been observed by a Prefect API. This may be your Prefect Cloud workspace API, a local Prefect Orion API server, or the Prefect ephemeral API in your local development environment.
