This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions on choosing an ideal word or phrase must include information on how it will be used in order to be answered. For help writing a good word or phrase request, see: About single word requests" – Glorfindel, Hellion, sumelic, Phil Sweet
even or level, as with a surface; forming the same plane:
The bottom of the window is flush with the floor.
having direct contact; being right next to; immediately adjacent; contiguous:
The table was flush against the wall.
(I noticed this was in the comments by @Glorfindel after I posted - the full definition including it's mathematical meaning may be worth considering )
I think "adjacent" is a bit more common and word more appropiate with things such as the examples below...however the other answers emphasize the "no space between" more firmly:
1 Next to or adjoining something else.
‘the area adjacent to the station’
(of a pair of angles) formed on the same side of a straight line when intersected by another line.
1.) To touch or lean upon.
2.) To be adjacent to, border at.
