When a document needs to be saved, this is referred to as being
"dirty". Since this is a true/false setting, it is often called a
flag.
In Macs, if you look at a document in say, Text Edit, if it needs
saving, the close close blob in the title bar will have a dark centre,
so this is a "dirty button".

Cheers,
