A rank flag exists for the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO),
dependent to the U.S. Department of Commerce.
The flag in question is a horizontal flag with the seal (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Patent_and_Trademark_Office#/media/File:US-PatentTrademarkOffice-Seal.svg) in white background with (what seems to be) four red stars, each in a respective corner as seen here:

Here's a variant with the golden eagle (http://www.bisnow.com/archives/legal/0209/legal_images/022309d.jpg,
instead of brown.
Here's another picture (fourth flag from left to right) (http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/robin-evans-acting-regional-director-of-the-united-states-patent-and-picture-id473059282, source: http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/robin-evans-acting-regional-director-of-the-united-states-news-photo/473059282).
It seems that it is the flag of the Director of USPTO. "The Under Secretary (of Commerce for Intellectual Property), or USC(IP) is dual-hatted as the Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office within the Commerce Department" (sources: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Under_Secretary_of_Commerce_for_Intellectual_Property).
