Fitzpatrick had to contend with Flynn's quicker speed around the ring at the partisan Glasgow crowd who were urging their man on.
The west Belfast man, who fights out of the Immaculata club on Albert Street, never really got a chance to unload his fierce left hand and, by the end of round two, was behind on the judges' score cards.
Only a knockout would give Fitzpatrick a slim hope of landing the gold.
Flynn didn't disappoint his fans, staying clear of the danger and leaving the south paw Fitzpatrick to chase the fight.
But silver was a great return for Fitzpatrick in his first major games and gives Northern Ireland an afternoon to remember in Glasgow with two silver and two gold medals to add to the five bronze medals from Friday.
