A flag of surrender is used during the heat of battle, to alert your adversary that you are beaten. A flag of truce is used when hostilities are not active, and you seek to engage your adversary in discussions (prisoner swap, terms of surrender, retrieval of dead/wounded, etc.). The description is accurate.
