Try rolling the flag gently around a bit of wire to get it semi folded before squeezing it together at either end - rather than just folding / creasing and cracking it. Love the Big Bang Theory reference. Sheldon would approve.

If you get the flag sheet thoroughly soaked with watered-down PVA glue before you wrap it round, this should solve the problem.   I find that there is always a little touch up required on flags on the edges, because it is next to impossible to avoid white edges, but I use paint to do that rather than a pen.
