No. It has a face value of 37 cents.

Here is a guide from the US Postal Service of the current face values of non-denominated stamps:

I would not hesitate to use them, but make sure it is to friends & relatives so that, should an alert clerk assess postage due, you would have a Genuine Collector's Item.

re: 2002 First class Flag Stamps

I have a roll of Canadian "whatever stamps" ( I'm having a senior's moment, I can't remember the name for stamps with no denomination specified! ) that I have been using for the better part of 10 years with no problem. I thought they were good forever, but either the US is different or I have just been lucky!

re: 2002 First class Flag Stamps

In spite of your "senior moment" you nailed the term on the next line: "forever stamps." I suspect the difference is that the Canadian issues are labelled "forever" and were presented when initially offered as valid forever for first class postage, even though the designated rate changes regularly (and always upward). Apparently the USPS does not have this understanding of the displayed undenominated stamps (akin to the old A, B, C, etc. undenominated series of transitional issues when the rates were changing).

US first class stamps are inscribed "Forever". Canadian first class stamps are labeled "P" for "Permanent".
