How do I remove a flag from a G2G answer or comment that my fat finger accidentally set while scrolling too fast on a small screen?

(Also, my sincerest apologies to anyone I may have upset by the unruly actions of my fat finger.)

I did the same thing by accident and where it had said flag before I hit it, it then said unflag. Hitting the unflag made the flag disappear.

Thanks!  I'll try that.
Frank, I was almost sure that I had tried that last time without seeing the link change to "unflag" but it certainly worked when I flagged your answer just now.

Maybe it wasn't me who had flagged the comment and I only thought I did.
Erik, the "unflag" shows only for the person who set the first flag.  If there is already 1 flag and someone else clicks their flag link then the second flag will automatically hide the question or answer or comment (whichever it is that was flagged to begin with).
