Fayette County, Iowa, now displays its flag on its website: www.fayettecountyiowa.org. It is a dark blue flag with the seal centered.

Back in 2002, the Iowa State Association of Counties website hosted an account of each county's history, signed by its County Recorder, and illustrated with a black and white flag image. It is not clear whether these flag images were provided by the county administration or not.
Archived copies of the pages about Fayette County are still at web.archive.org/web/*/www.iowacounties.org/County+Info/History+Pages/fayette.htm and web.archive.org/web/*/www.iowacounties.org/County+Info/Flags/Fayette.htm. It is a ~3:5 plain light (white?) flag an emblem drawn in dark (black?) centered on it. The emblem is a disc filled with a landscape featuring a a river, clouds, and scenic bluffs, circled at the bottom with a scroll reading "where hills and prairies meet", all under heavy bold serif capitals reading "Fayette".

The booklet [u9s03b] (on p. 4, 2nd and 3rd images of the 4th row) shows that the flag is white with the emblem being line drawn in three colors: Green (scroll lettering and vegetation), black (hills), and blue (every thing else: large lettering, cloud, circle, scroll, and river).
