The arms were officially granted on October 20, 1819 and changed on June 28, 1847 and again on May 7, 1985.

Ardooie first received arms in 1819 by the Dutch government.

These arms showed in a blue shield three stars, the lower one with a comet-tail, all gold. The oldest seal of the council dates from 1692 and shows three stars. Another seal, dating from the 18th century shows the three stars, one with a comet tail. The council applied for the latter arms in the early 19th century. As no colours were known, the arms were granted in the Dutch national colours.

In 1847 the council decided to use historical arms of the 15th and 16th century Lords of Ardooie, in the colours used by the family. There is no known use of these arms by the local council during these centuries, but the arms appear already on a publication from 1619.

The 1985 arms combine the historical arms of Ardooie with those of Koolskamp.
