On a background of a mountain scene of green hills and blue sky, the municipal seal, consisting of a red saltire on a white field, overlain in the centre by a buff map of Alabama, and in each quarter a guitar, a railroad engine, a sock(?) and a feather above a teardrop. Around the seal, the municipal name, the date 1889, the state name and three letters in an unknown script, each separated by a small red star.

Fort Payne held a flag contest in 2017 (http://southerntorch.com/winners-fort-payne-flag-design-contest/); the first and second place winners were combined into a single flag, which was revealed in February 2018 but is not shown in this article (http://southerntorch.com/fort-payne-unveils-new-flag/)

The new flag is mentioned in this article, but log-in is needed to read it (http://times-journal.com/news/article_b3d3b69c-1b39-11e8-9db4-033ca671ca45.html).

Fort Payne was known as the "Sock Capital of the World," which explains the sock on the flag (see NY Times article: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/31/fashion/sock-business-alabama.html). It was also home for a time of Sequoya, the inventor of Cherokee syllabary.
