Back in the 1920's the word "Flapper" was coined to describe to women who danced the latest craze; the Charleston. The term was derived from the movements associated with the dance steps that required that the woman would flap their arms & walk like birds - hence Flappers as in flapping wings of the birds. Although the dance was popularized during the 1920's, the earliest Charleston is believed to have been part of several Harlem (USA) stage shows being recorded as early as 1913.
