Colored pictures - what is it. Blit/Flip is too specific english words for
me and I'm badly imaging self - how they can be transalted.
Is flip analog of doublebuffering or it is something other (like rotating
picture on 180 or 270)?

It's public part of VBE3 documentation.
On page 40 of documentation:
If bit D14 is set, the mode will be initialized for use with a flat frame buffer model.
The base address of frame buffer can be determined from the extended mode information
returned by VBE Function 01h. If D14 is set, and linear frame buffer model is not
available then the call will fail.
