let isError = false;

this is global error flag they are talking about

It is global because it is declared in the global scope

More on scope: https://www.freecodecamp.org/news/scope-in-javascript-global-vs-local-vs-block-scope/

It is called flag, cause it is meant to have boolean values - true or false.

So it acts like a switcher.
