The arms were granted on October 28, 1840.

The arms are first seen on a 16th century map of the Free Territory of Brugge (Brugse Vrije). The chevron most likely was the symbol of the Lords of Dudzele. The shells are officially described as shells of Saint Michael, but more likely are the symbol of St. James, as one of the main roads of the pilgrims to the grave of the saint in Santiago de Compostella (Spain) originated in Lissewege.

The base of the arms shows a canting reed plant (lis=reed mace).
