Easily hide files or folders from users in the Finder

Thanks for posting this hint. I had also researched this topic some time ago, but did not come across the chflags hidden command. Another way of hiding folders from Finder is by starting its name with a period as in ".HiddenFolder", but using chflags is much more flexible.
