I believe flat networking refers to a single l2 network (e.g. a vlan) to which all vms are connected.

But in this case.. can you explain how is this supposed to be configured? :S Like the diagram says I need to have a public interface: OK and I need to have a bridge interface but with two networks? I'm confusing everything at this point :S
