In this paper we study the class ${\cal F}$ of Lie algebras having a flag of subalgebras, and the class ${\cal Ch}_{lm}$ of Lie algebras having a maximal chain of lower modular subalgebras. We show that ${\cal F} \subseteq {\cal Ch}_{lm}$ and that both are extensible formations that are subalgebra closed. We derive a number of properties relating to these two classes, including a classification of the algebras in each class over a field of characteristic zero.
