Microsoft provides support for SharePoint designer to use in SharePoint online sites.You can using SharePoint Designer to create workflow in SharePoint online. But SharePoint Designer 2013 will not be supported beyond 2026.

SharePoint Designer workflow is only confined to SharePoint while Microsoft Flow has the ability to interface with other applications.

But Microsoft Flow is not the direct replacement for SharePoint Workflows. Microsoft Flow is the evolution of business process management allowing you to build elegant solutions which have the ability to orchestrate data across the various line of business applications leveraging “clicks” and not code.
