Flint is an unincorporated community in southwestern Smith County, Texas, United States. It lies along State F.M. 2493 south of the city of Tyler, the county seat of Smith County.[1] Its elevation is 522 feet (159 m).[2] Although Flint is unincorporated, it has a post office, with the ZIP code of 75762.[3]
