Quantum flag manifolds (or varieties) are certain quantum homogeneous spaces of duals of Drinfel’d-Jimbo quantum groups or their relatives, viewed as noncommutative quotients with respect to (co)action of the corresponding quantum Borel subgroup.
Usual flag varieties are projective varieties, hence they have a (commutative) graded coordinate ring. Thus most of the approaches to quantum flag varieties, define the quantum flag variety via its noncommutative graded algebra of functions (cf. the book by Joseph).
