My background won't stay transparent when I flatten the image

I'm attempting to create a grid template which I would be able to overlay on top of various other images. I'm able to create my grid and have a transparent background, but once I flatten the image in order to overlay it onto another, the background is no longer transparent. Is there any way to maintain the transparency of the background, so that the grid can be transposed onto other images?

Why do you flatten the image? A flattened image has no transparency. 

Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible? 

 

You could merge the Layers and use a Library or save the image as a psd and place it via Image > Place …
