In this paper, we completely characterize locally compact flows $G$ of homeomorphisms of connected manifolds $M$ by proving that they are either circle groups or real groups. For $M = \mathbb R^m$, we prove that every recurrent element in $G$ is periodic, and we obtain a generalization of the result of Yang [Hilbert’s fifth problem and related problems on transformation groups, American Mathematical Society, Providence, RI, 1976, pp. 142–146.] by proving that there is no nontrivial locally compact flow on $\mathbb R^m$ in which all elements are recurrent.
