This paper introduces a class of smooth projective varieties that generalise and share many properties with partial flag varieties of type <i><b>A</b></i>. The quiver flag variety <i><b>M<sub>θ</sub>(Q,<u>r</u></b></i>) of a finite acyclic quiver <b><i>Q</i></b> (with a unique source) and a dimension vector <i><b><u>r</u></b></i> is a fine moduli space of stable representations of <b><i>Q</i></b>. Quiver flag varieties are Mori Dream Spaces, they are obtained via a tower of Grassmann bundles, and their bounded derived category of coherent sheaves is generated by a tilting bundle. We define the multigraded linear series of a weakly exceptional sequence of locally free sheaves <b><i><u>E</u> = (O<sub>X</sub>,E_1,...,E<sub>ρ</sub>)</i></b> on a projective scheme <b>X</b> to be the quiver flag variety <b><i>|<u>E</u>|= Mθ(Q,<u>r</u>)</i></b> of a pair <b><i>(Q,<u>r</u></i></b>) encoded by <b><i><u>E</u></i></b>. When each <i><b>E<sub>i</sub></b></i> is globally generated, we obtain a morphism <i><b>φ<sub>|<u>E</u>|</sub> : X -> |<u>E</u>|</b></i> realising each <i><b>E<sub>i</sub></b></i> as the pullback of a tautological bundle. As an application we introduce the multigraded Plucker embedding of a quiver flag variety
