There's one. Enter:

+Bicycle +"safety flag"

into Google and you'll find a bazillion.

I found a red traffic directing flag, left behind after some road construction. The flag is on the floor in front of my bike in this picture:

I carry it in the handlebar basket and I use it as needed.

The problem with those fiberglass pole bike flags is you cant swing your leg over the rear wheel to mount or dismount.
