As far as I can understand the flag on the photo I received from the city is the original 1963 flag, and it was change twice since that time. But, the only changes that were made are in different motto, whole design is the same. But, I
might be wrong, so here is the text I got:
"The City of Fayetteville flag was presented to City Council June 11, 1963. It has red, white and blue colors in honor of America and our shared colors with France, the home of Lafayette, the person Fayetteville was named after. Fayetteville's Scottish history is recalled by the arrangement of the colors and squares reminding us of a Scottish tartan. The Market House, the former site of good sells and the former town hall, forms the center of the flag. The first flag had the motto, "City of History and Progress," that later changed to, "City of Dogwoods." The flag now says, "History, Heroes, & A Hometown Feeling" on it.
