A flaw is when something is damaged or not right. But a crack is a fracture in the object.

But according to wikipedia flaw is only used in terms of character (I didn't find any other topic) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Character_flaw

And wikipedia also puts crack under fracture http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fracture

A flaw is a general term for any imperfection or defect in an object. A crack, on the other hand, specifically refers to a visible line or fissure in a material due to damage or stress. In essence, a crack is a type of flaw, but not all flaws result in cracks.
