Abstract: Let $Z = G/Q$ be a complex flag manifold. The compact real form $G_u$ of $G$ is transitive on $Z$. If $G_0$ is a noncompact real form, such transitivity is rare but occasionally happens. Here we work out a complete list of Lie subgroups of $G$ transitive on $Z$ and pick out the cases that are noncompact real forms of $G$.
