Matte vs. Flat - what is the difference?

What is the difference between Matte and Flat paint? I never paid much mind to anything but eggshell, but now that I am shopping for paint I am intrigued with what my other options are. I need something that could be washable along a hallway and light switches, doorways, etc., but I do not want shiny.
