The Senior Executive Service, established by the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978, constitutes the seniormost grades of the U.S. federal civil service not including statutory officials who are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. There are about 7,000 members of the SES, of whom 88% are career civil servants. Most of the remainder are political appointees who serve at the pleasure of the Administration. The flag for members of the SES is blue with the SES keystone emblem in the center in yellow, surrounded by a ring of 13 yellow stars.
