The feat Gang Up states

You are considered to be flanking an opponent if at least two of your allies are threatening that opponent

Does this mean my allies are also considered flanking, or only the character (or characters) with Gang Up?

I think the RAW are pretty clear: You are considered to be flanking. Also, You are considered to be flanking, not you are flanking.

I'd go with "Only you".

Correct, only you, unless they have the feat or you have the Inquisitor ability to let your allies benefit from your tactical feats (the only case in which they are worth taking a feat, IMO). – mxyzplk May 7 '12 at 2:03
