In flag football, you don't bring the person with the ball to the ground, you just yank one of the flags on their belt off and that is a tackle. Also, you don't wear pads and you can't make contact.

What is the difference between tackle football touch football and flag football?

Real Difference for example: In all United States High Schools; if football is played, tackle football is played by men, and flag football is played by girls or for fun. In tackle football, the ball carrier needs to be taken to the ground by a tackle. The knee needs to hit the ground, by getting hit to the ground. In touch football, or in the many variations such as one-touch and two-touch, you merely need to touch the ball carrier for him to be "down". In flag football, players wear flags, usually attached to the waist by Velcro. The tackler must pull off the ball carrier's flag thing for him to be "down."
