The Senate flag, emblazoned with the Senate seal, was designed in 1984 and first became available for display in 1987.
The stars and stripes design of the U.S. flag dates back to the Second Continental Congress. The design of the flag changed over the years as new states were added to the Union. While laws exist on its proper display, there is no penalty or punishment for improper display and treatment of the flag.
