      IN my experience the 37 degree are single flare, and some times called JIC, or military or AN flare,


      SAE J514, 37° Flare (JIC)

      Commonly referred to as 37° JIC, this connection is widely used in hydraulic systems. When the straight threads are engaged, the 37° male seat seals on the 37° female flare seat. Most thread sizes are identical to the 45° SAE connection as noted (*) below. Care must be taken not to confuse these two connectors, which have different seat angles.

      and the double flare is a 45 degree, and many times referred to as a SAE flare, (even tho most flares have a SAE specification)
      some times referred to as an Inverted Flare, I think more so for the fitting used, http://www.discounthydraulichose.com...ings_s/241.htm

      some interesting reading on brake lines,
