Look at diagrams.net (formerly draw.io). It is gratis (free of cost). I use it intensively as a software engineer to architect and design different workflows. There is also a desktop app for the same web tool.

Before you try MS Visio, have a look at yEd. It's free, works on Windows as well and can also draw flowcharts. You can adjust the colors etc. to make it look closer to Visio.

draw.io can be used to draw flowcharts among other schematics and drawings. If you want an offline version, you can download the app at https://about.draw.io/integrations/. I have used both the online and the offline versions for flowcharts on OSX and I can say they work quite well.
