Both forms are correct. Flavor and flavour are both correct spellings, only one of them is the American English version and the second one is British English. There is a slight difference in pronunciation in ending accent, the American version is pronounced like /ˈfleɪ.vɚ/ and British like /ˈfleɪ.vər/. It is a common case where an American word ends with -or and its British equivalent has ending -our. When it comes to meanings, they overlap.
Correct spelling, explanation: form mostly used in American English.
Correct spelling, explanation: form common in British English.
