Abstract: A semigroup $ S$ is called (left, right) absolutely flat if all of its (left, right) $ S$-sets are flat. $ S$ is a (left, right) generalized inverse semigroup if $ S$ is regular and its set of idempotents $ E(S)$ is a (left, right) normal band (i.e. a strong semilattice of (left zero, right zero) rectangular bands). In this paper it is proved that a generalized inverse semigroup $ S$ is left absolutely flat if and only if $ S$ is a right generalized inverse semigroup and the (nonidentity) structure maps of $ E(S)$ are constant. In particular all inverse semigroups are left (and right) absolutely flat (see [1]). Other consequences are derived.
