More Flamsteed intrigues

 Here is another Flamsteed anomaly. The stars Fl 10 UMi magnitude 7.2 and Fl 14 Umi magnitude 7.4 are shown on sky atlas 2000 although interestingly they are only listed in the star catalog 2000 under their SAO numbers! 

However the nearby star SAO 8211 which has a magnitude of 6.6 does not have a flamsteed number yet it is brighter than both 10 and 14 UMi.

It really is all very confusing really.
