Had a similar issue yesterday doing the Defias Traitor escort quest. I healed him and it flagged me as pvp. The odd part of it was that any sort of character "state" change would reset the timer. Shapeshifting, mount/dismount, flights, etc. If I just stood there the timer went down. (Un)fortunately someone killed me in Lakeshire while I was letting it sit while AFK so I don't know if it would have completely cleared at the end of doing nothing for 5 minutes or being killed cleared it.

For the last 3 days anytime my NE shadow priest casts any spells in Sholozar Basin the flag appears, if I let the timer run out and cast another spell it appears again. I've tried different spells and actions but it's not limited to any group, even summoning my mount flags me.
If I leave the zone with my hearthstone the flag is immediately cancelled.

EDIT: I took HappyFeet3's advice and got myself killed, it fixed it for me and hasn't returned.

EDIT2: Returned to Sholozar yesterday and the bug returned.

I realize this is an old post, but while leveling, I've come across being flagged for FFA pvp on occasion. Most of them disappear after a few seconds again, but one spot, will leave the flag on at all times for me:
South East section of Zangarmarsh flags me for FFA PvP, as soon as I leave the Cenarion Refuge. EDIT: Upon reaching the Umbrafen Village the flag clears again.
EDIT 2: It appears to be a zone wide bug for Zangarmarsh, for all areas that is not labeled with a subzone.
I play NE Warrior on Alliance.

Feel free to contact me if more information is needed

My level 80 Draenei was locked in PVP mode and I couldn't figure it out... for a while.
I had tried all the suggested remedies, clearing cache, WTF, relogging, etc.
Turns out it was a very simple cause. I had a QUEST IN MY LOG IN A PVP AREA THAT I HAD NOT DONE YET!.
Specifcally, I had the Grizzly Hills quest "Seeking Solvent" which takes place in Venture Bay, which IS a PVP area.
I took notes as I was going down my quest log and abandoning quests, area by area, and logging out and back in between removing each area's quests.
As soon as I abandoned Seeking Solvent and relogged, the PVP flag cleared ( I was parked in Dalaran in a "zzz" safe zone while clearing these.)

If your PVP flag seems to be stuck on, go to a safe zone (showing 'zzz'), abandon any quests you have in a PVP area (or go complete them first) and re-login. If you have no PVP quests left in your quest log, relogging while in a safe/resting/NON-PVP area should reset the PVP flag.

An uncompleted quest that takes place in a PVP zone seems able to keep your PVP flag on even when you go back to safe areas.
Advice? Finish what you started and get the quest completed and out of your to-do quest list.

Personally I flag on purpose, but for some reason my Flag turns off. When I hover over it to see if its turned off, it says its turned on but I'm not flagged... even though i want to be flagged...So I dunno lol, Wish I were just always flagged... but the server won't lemme.
