This uptempo pop song performed by British pop/R&B singer Alexandra Burke is a track from her debut studio album, Overcome. The song was written and produced by production team, The Runaways (Rico Love, Jim Jonsin, Sam Watters, and Louis Biancaniello). For its release as the singer's fourth single it was remixed to feature Miami rapper Pitbull, with tweaked vocals from Burke herself.
Burke gave the first televised performance of the song on the March 21, 2010 edition of ITV's Dancing on Ice.
Dido helped shut down a Neo-Nazi Web site after learning it was using "White Flag" to promote its hateful messages. Owners of the site had misinterpreted the track as racist and thought they represented their white supremacy views.
