Setting default flag color in Mail

I just upgraded to Monterey and now the default flag color is orange, instead of red (which is what I have on all my other devices). The keyboard shortcut to set and clear flag now has to cycle through orange and then red and then off, which is a silly issue but it’s annoying.

How do I switch the default Mail flag color on Monterey so it can be red everywhere? Thanks!

Seems like mail defaults to the last flag color used. Select a mail message and flag it with the desired color. When you flag another email mail, either with thru the menu or the flag icon, it will flag it with the last color used.
