What is the difference between Error,Defect and Bug?

Here I am trying to explain what is the difference between Error, Defect and Bug in Testing.
Error/Flaw:
If a developer finds a mistake in coding then that mistake is called as Error/Flaw.
Defect/Issue:
If a tester detected any mistake in software coding then that mistake is called as Defect/Issue.
Bug:
If a testers defect was accepted by developers to fix then the defect is called as Bug. Sometime customer facing problems in software after release that is also called as Bug.
