That said,Enterprise is Starfleet's flagship not for technical reasons,not even because an admiral commanded one,but because a ship called Enterprise has been around before the Federation even existed.In homage to that history the Enterprise will always be the Federation flagship.
I suspect there's more to it than that, otherwise Kumari or T'Plana-Hath would be the flagship.
I would assume that it's in tribute to the fact that without the United Earth Ship Enterprise NX-01, neither the Coalition of Planets nor the United Federation of Planets would have been established--the Confederacy of Vulcan and the Andorian Empire would still be at each other's throats, United Earth would still be under Vulcan's heel, and who knows what Tellar would be up to?
