Indexing Flickr Photos

I was just wondering if anyone here knew whether or not Google indexes the tags on Flickr images? 

I've searched via Google Images for some of my flickr photos before (using what is in the tags), and had zero of them come up.

It was only when I entered what was in the description did anything pop up. (Ie: searching for a building in my city, the name of which was in the tags, only to have the photos with the name in the description pop up.)

If anyone knew the answer that would be great!
