Flag removal: Is it possible to remove your flag or otherwise indicate it should be unflagged?

I was just doing "my bit" on SO and was flagging a series of answers as spam... I got a little over-zealous and accidently flagged Facebook friend counter as spam, and it's not... Is there anyway to retract a flag? Or, do I just have to stick with looking like a plonker?

A mod will decline the flag that's all. –  asawyer Oct 29 '12 at 19:53

Tim Post comes to your house and beats you to death with a giant flag.

Naw; whatever moderator handles it ends up rolling their eyes and dismissing it. No one even sees your name on spam flags - so your mistake gets chalked up to the big "SO users click things randomly" tally and folks get on with their lives.
