Meaning : “Flair” refers to an innate ability and aptitude to do something and excel at it. For example: Everyone knew Ruskin had a flair for writing. On the other hand, “flare” is a sudden gust of light that is used in cases of emergency, to signal people, warning signs at battlefields, etc. Example: On being hit by the icebergs, the crew of the Titanic deployed flares in hopes some other ship would respond. Flares are also used by military aircrafts to deviate missiles aimed at them, because the missiles are programmed to follow heat signatures of their exhausts, but the flares trigger the missile at a distance away from the jet so safeguard the pilot and the payload.
