Flat x pitched roofs

Hello guys

Looking at some aerial views on cities around the world I realized that there is a prevalence of flat roofs in residential buildings generally up to 4 storeys in some cities in north america (Montreal and Boston, for example) whereas the same buildings in european cities tend to have pitched roofs (British cities are good exemple). I don't think this difference is due to climatic issues since these cities have similar weather (Montreal is snowier). So, what motivates these cities opt for one or another kind of roof? Which one would you guys prefer to have/see in the cities?
