The string you provided has a syntax error. To find objects in the dom with the attribute myFlag set to 1 try, $('*[myFlag=1]')

Also, what's the syntax if I wanted all elements with any value for myFlag?

PS I see the syntax error: thanks.

If you want to check the attribute then

if($("#anyElement").attr("myFlag") == "1")
 // your code
