The district was established in the Qing Dynasty (1644–1911) as a county, Hua County or Huaxian (Chinese: 花县; pinyin: Huāxiàn; Cantonese Yale: Fāyún, also known as Fahsien), which was located north of the then city limits of Guangzhou. It remained a county until 1993, when it was recognized as a city and renamed as Huadu (Chinese: 花都; pinyin: Huādu; Cantonese Yale: Fādōu). In 2000, it became an attached northern suburban district of the expanded municipality of Guangzhou.
Natives of Huadu speak a dialect of Yue Chinese called Huaxian (Chinese: 花县话; Cantonese Yale: Fāyún wá or Fahsien). In addition to its population, Huadu is the hometown of approximately 300,000 overseas Chinese, including some in Hong Kong and Macao.
