Here is the response from the Clerk of the U.S. House of Represenatives regarding a flag:
In regard to your inquiry about an official flag for the House of Representatives, the office supply section indicates that such a flag exists. It was authorized and designed for use by House members with the House seal in a white field, fringed in gold. Every flag that was ever ordered, two in the last 15 years, was custom-made and cost $900.submitted by: Chris Dean, 22 August 2002
However, office supply no longer has any documentation of the authorization of the flag or an official description of its design. There was an unsuccessful effort to authorize a flag in 1961, and in 1984 legislation was introduced prohibiting former members of Congress displaying a flag indicating current service. We have been unable to narrow any authorization for the flag any further.
