In this paper we study flag curvature of invariant $(\alpha,\beta)$-metrics of the form $\frac{(\alpha+\beta)^2}{\alpha}$ on homogeneous spaces and Lie groups. We give a formula for flag curvature of invariant metrics of the form $F=\frac{(\alpha+\beta)^2}{\alpha}$ such that $\alpha$ is induced by an invariant Riemannian metric $g$ on the homogeneous space and the Chern connection of $F$ coincides to the Levi-Civita connection of $g$. Then some conclusions in the cases of naturally reductive
