I have seen questions marked as duplicate of two questions. Can I, as a low-rep user, do that by flagging?
Earlier I had asked the question
What do scriptures say about luck?
Ram gave beautiful explanation in comments yesterday and also gave links to two old questions:
I think these two questions answer my question. I flag my own questions too as duplicate if those are. But in this case there are two questions which answer my question.
How can I do so? Is it something only high-rep users can do?

It is possible if close voters do caste votes to close the question as duplicate pointing more than one questions as target. Another way is to add duplicate targets as mentioned at
Gold tag-badge holders and moderators can now edit duplicate links
What you can do as an author of question is
Caste close vote choosing any one of the two target questions
When close vote will be recorded, the system will show you a notice "You question may already have an answer..."; Click on
"That solved my problem" button so that community user will close the question immediately on behalf of you! Raise a custom moderator flag asking to add another duplicate targets.
By the way, the question you have mentioned is now closed as duplicate of two posts you have mentioned in custom flag reason.
