The flag stays up as long as you have booked.
As it stands having a system whereby it automatically turns off after you move wouldn't work with the system implemented. You have to move before the flag is lost otherwise opponents would have a chance to take the skull.
Also players don't only set vacation flags because they have no access whatsoever, some certainly use it for limited access periods where trying to keep up with a hundred 3/7 games (for example) could prove beyond them, or just to inform others of their relative lack of speed in replying.
