How to remove flags with no link date available

I have a flag column with this formula:

=IF([Start of NESV Validation]@row < TODAY(-30), 1)

The formula works fine when the "Start of NESV Validation" column has a date available. But when there's no date present, a red flag still shows.

How can I leave the flag space blank if no date is available?

If have also tried this formula as well:

=IFERROR(IF([Start of NESV Validation]@row < TODAY(-30), 1), "")

The flag still shows up.

    Try something like this instead and either color the dot in the same color as the background or add a Conditional Formatting rule doing the same.

    =IF([Start of NESV Validation]@row = "", ".", IFERROR(IF([Start of NESV Validation]@row < TODAY(-30), 1), ""))
