Answer:
Yes current flows from higher potential to lower potential. Current is the flow of electrons. Now electrons move from lower potential to higher potentiala and conventionally current is flow of positive charges which move from higher potential to lower potential.
 
Hence, all in all we can say that current flows from higher to lower and electrons flow from lower to higher potential.
