With only Jira, no.  It cannot be done.

However if you are using a 3rd party plugin with Jira, you could probably do this.  The Flagged field is just a custom field that exists on issues.  You could use a script that might be able to do this, or a plugin like Field Sync.  This particular plugin appears to be able to sync fields for linked issues.  So perhaps you could configure this to sync this Flagged field on the source issue with any other issues that have the 'blocks' issue link relation.

It is likely that there are other plugins for Jira that could help here alternatively as well.
