FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec. The files are free and distributed to users under an open-source license, hence the "Free". Lossless means that if you rip an Audio CD track to a FLAC file, that file will retain the same quality of the original (CD quality). It compresses audio file that maintains the same quality as the original source despite often being less than 50 percent of the original file size.
