[R=301,L] does two things:

1 R=301 -- redirects the user to the new URL instead of displaying the
content at the URL the user entered

2 - L - Tells the rewrite engine not to apply any other rules to this URL

Try removing the L from your rule and see if it does what you're
looking for. The only problem I see with your second rule is that it's
not being applied due to the L in your flag list.
