Try.. You may remove the -Recurse if required, so it will not search the sub directories..
$folders = Get-ChildItem -Recurse |?{$_.psiscontainer} | % {If ((GCI "$($_.fullname)\*" -Include "flag.txt") -eq $null){$_.fullname}}

If you want to do recursive search in directory then it will take time depends on the file count...
