I have added and used some new flags in the past, but some of them I don't want to use anymore, besides the list of flags is becoming too long. How can I remove these unused flags from the list? In the window where I can add new flags, there is a button " remove" but it is greyed out.

You are doing this the wrong way.
The only way to remove flags is: Prefs > Fields > Flags > click on the flag you want to remove and click Remove.
BTW: this is also mentioned in the Manual

Thanks, I have seen this in the manual, and it is not what I meant. I do not only want to remove the flag in the persons, but I want to remove the possibility to use this particular flag at all, I do not want to see this flag in the list of flags that I can use. I can add new flags to that list, but I do not know how to remove them.

Sorry, you were right, only after restarting Reunion, the flag is indeed removed...
Thanks.

Think you understand my explanation wrong.
To remove the flag from your whole familyfile: use the steps explained in the Manual.
You had to go to the Reunion Prefs
When you remove it there itís completely gone.
