I would like to initialize this kind of vector : {0,0,1,1,0,1,0,1,1,1,1,1} with Table.
I tried Table[{x, y, 1}, {y, 0, 1, 1}, {x, 0, 1, 1}] but it outputs {{0,0,1},{1,0,1},{0,1,1},{1,1,1}}.
What is the right method to correctly initialize my vector without creating sub-lists ?

Table[{x, y, 1}, {y, 0, 1, 1}, {x, 0, 1, 1}] // Flatten

gives

{0,0,1,1,0,1,0,1,1,1,1,1}

Consider also:

Flatten @ Array[{#2, #, 1} &, {2, 2}, 0]
{0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1}

This is faster than Table, if applicable:

n = 2200;

Table[{x, y, 1}, {y, 0, n}, {x, 0, n}] // Flatten // Length // Timing
Array[{#2, #, 1} &, {n, n} + 1, 0]     // Flatten // Length // Timing
{1.435209, 14533203}

{0.280802, 14533203}
