It is proven that the flag geometry of a Chevalley group can be derived from the flag geometry of its Weyl group by using a linear covering defined by the author. To prove this, the author regards elements of the Weyl group geometry as vectors of a Euclidean space in such a way that the incidence of vectors is defined by their scalar products.
