Fag has several different meanings. One meaning of fag is an American English slang word for a homosexual man and is seen to be very derogatory. Another way in which the word fag is used is to name a junior boy at a public school who acts as a servant to a senior boy, known as fagging. Probably the most common meaning of the word fag is cigarette in which it is a colloquialism.
Fagging was a traditional educational practice in British boarding private schools and nearly all public schools in the England and also many other boarding schools, where younger pupils were required to act as personal servants to the most senior boys. While domestic servants were common in family households, the custom reflected household task distribution and taught pupils about service from both ends of the relationship. Under school rules, fagging might entail harsh discipline and corporal punishment when those were standard practices. Fagging was sometimes associated with sexual abuse at the hands of these older boys. The practice of personal fagging faded away during the 1970s and 1980s, but to some degree has been maintained in former colonies or has been replaced by systems which require junior boys to do tasks for the benefit of the general school community. In England, the word "fag" became slang for a wearisome chore. It was also a punishment for younger children.

However today as stated before fag is most commonly used as a colloquialism of cigarette. A cigarette is a small roll of finely cut tobacco leaves wrapped in a cylinder of thin paper for smoking. The cigarette is ignited at one end and allowed to smoulder; its smoke is inhaled from the other end, which is held in or to the mouth and in some cases a cigarette holder may be used as well. Most modern manufactured cigarettes are filtered and include reconstituted tobacco and other additives.

It's another term used for a cigerette. (I think it's only used in the uk though) for instance, instead of someone saying 'I am smoking a cigarette' they might say 'I am smoking a fag' (I know there's no point in answering this question because it was asked 3 years ago but I was just bored)

In the U.K. It means a cigarette. In other countries, it can be a very cruel way of defining one who prefers their own sex instead of the opposite.

Fag refers to a student in an English public school who is obligated to carry out physical labour for another student senior to him. It also refers to the type of work that is give, that is, tedious and exhaustive.

It is also used to denote an activity that is tiring. For example, "one hour on the cricket pitch fagged me out". One that toils constantly without getting weary is also called a fag.
A fag is also a term denoting disapproval or mockery for a homosexual or a gay man. It is a largely offensive usage, much like other slang for gay men, namely, fairy, queer etc.
A fag is also a colloquial term for a cigarette.
