    Post the flagship measure in a package

    From Homeowners to get 12-month stamp duty holiday... but only for houses under 175,000 | Mail Online

    In the sentence below, what does "flagship" mean?

    The move was unveiled by Chancellor Alistair Darling as the flagship measure in a package to help homeowners through the credit crunch.

    The flagship used to be the leading ship in a naval battle.
    A flagship measure is the main one or lead one. It's the one that sets the standard for the rest - the one that's meant to catch the eye.
