The Guy Fawkes mask represents rebellion against a government. The reason for this is because Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Parliament building on November 5, 1605.

Is it true that guy Fawkes wore a mask like v in v for vendetta?

The mask worn in the movie V for Vendetta is a face that looks like Guy Fawkes, right down the "imperial". I doubt that Guy Fawkes ever wore a mast that looks like himself. I believe that the mask is more symbolic, in that V is styling himself after Guy (Guido) Fawkes who was trying to bring down the English government by blowing up parliament. He failed and was executed. In the V movie, he is trying to do a similar thing (albeit for different reasons) ... and even though V dies just like Fawkes, V actually succeeds in blowing up parliament.
