Well.. Think of it this way:
The flagship is the ship the Admirals flag is flown upon, it didnt need to nessecarily be the largest ship around (though it often was).
In WW2, many admirals typically used smaller and faster ships, and today it might be the ship with the best communications suite.. IIRC some navies actually have command&control ships today (that definately are smaller than say a CVN).
TL;DR - The flagship is whatever ship the Admiral is aboard, regardless of class.
