drapeau logique

Explanation:
boolean se traduit plutôt par "logique", "booléen" est un calque de l'anglais, une variable logique prend deux valeurs seulement (souvent notées 0 et 1, mais pourrait être autre chose).
Le flag est un "drapeau", on peut aussi utiliser indicateur, mais "set" et "reset" se traduisent alors facilement par lever et baisser le drapeau.
