A competition was held in the village prior to 2000 for an appropriate village emblem. The winning design is now incorporated in the village sign, erected to commemorate the millennium. The sign shows an oak tree as the name 'Acol' (originally 'Acholst') is derived from an ancient word for oak. The founding date for the original village is circa. AD 450.
The original village was situated at the top of Margate Hill in an area now known as Sparrow Castle Farm. At the time of the plague, the village became deserted and a new one was built in its present location.
