He was born in the town of Storozhynets (Romanian: Storojineṭ) in Northern Bukovina (now in Ukraine). His parents were Gheorghe Flondor (1828–1892) and Isabella von Dobrowolski-Buchental (1835-1890). Married to Elena de Zotta, he fathered three sons: Şerban (b. 1900), Neagoe (b. 1901), and Mircea (b. 1903).
During the winter of 1918, Flondor clashed with his rival Aurel Onciul over the political future of Bukovina, a dispute which culminated in the November request by Flondor for an intervention by the Romanian Army into what had become a chaotic Bukovina.
He died in Cernăuṭi (now Chernivtsi), and was buried in Storojineṭ.
