Flute belongs to the woodwind group of musical instruments and is a reedless wind instrument that produces sound from air going inside it from an opening.  

It is said that earliest flutes were found in the Swabian Alb region of Germany as back as 43,000 to 35,000 years ago.  

Flutes were made from bones in earlier times which later started being made from wood or Bamboo. The first flute that was held sideways evolved in China, around 3000 years back.  
So, it is difficult to ascertain in which country flute originated but yes Europeans or Egyptians seem to have given flute to the world.
