Do you need a firewall with cloudflare?

If I have Cloudflare enabled, do I still need a firewall on my local box? I'm thinking it is a good idea but it is also redundant. Thoughts and ideas?

Firewall is not needed if you enable cloud flare.

I don't recommend following this advice. Even with cloudflare, you still need to protect your server from attacks both inbound and outbound. You still need a firewall.

Ofcourse, you need firewall. Although cloudflare makes sure you get legitimate traffic, there are other several types of attack present which can be prevented by means of the firewall.
