Definition
A microtubule-based flagellum (or cilium) that is part of a sperm, a mature male germ cell that develops from a spermatid. Source: GOC:cilia, GOC:sart, PMID:8441407

Note that cilia and eukaryotic flagella are deemed to be equivalent. In this case community usage is always 'flagellum', hence the primary term name, but the cilium parentage is deliberate.
