The English word "flan" comes from the Old French flaon (modern French flan), in turn from the early Medieval Latin fladō, of Germanic origin, from an Indo-European root meaning "flat" or "broad".

The word Flan refers to an open pastry or sponge cake containing a sweet or savory filling. A typical flan of this sort is round, with shortcrust pastry, usually coated with sweet syrup. It is similar to a custard tart or a South African melktert.
