After a three-month search, city officials in Fayetteville have chosen a design for a new city flag. Nita McFarlin submitted the winning design, and her creation was unveiled at the June 6  City Council meeting. McFarlin also
received $200 for her efforts. A longtime Fayette County resident, McFarlin once attended school in the same building that now houses City Hall, according to Main Street manager Nancy Price. The idea for a city flag was brought to Price
earlier this year by Councilman Larry Dell, and a countywide contest was organized to find the best design incorporating the city's slogan, "A History with a Future." A team chosen by the mayor and City Council reviewed the
submissions and chose the winner.

The flag of the City of Fayetteville, Gorgia, is a tricolor with three horizontal stripes - red-white-blue 1:2:1, with "FAYETTEVILLE/Georgia/"A History with a Future"" on the white stripe. The flag was adopted on 06.06.2002, and officially hoisted for the first time on 28.09.2002. Designer is local designer and artist Nita McFarlin.
Here is what she said about her flag design:
"I designed the flag with the same colors as France, since LaFayette was French and Fayetteville is named for him. Also, the double t in Fayetteville serves as the foundation for the clock tower. I believe the courthouse, being the oldest in Georgia, is most recognized by the tower and clock."
