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.

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.
