The municipality of Jardinópolis (1,766 inhabitants in 2010; 6,810 ha) is
located 650 km west of Florianópolis.
Jardinópolis was settled, as Vila Jardim, in the late 1940s by descendants of Italian immigrants coming from Rio Grande do Sul. The first settlers were Ângelo Detoni and Amélio Piccinin, in 1948. They were joined the next year by the families of Maurício Oselame and Antônio Alberti, and, in 1951, by the families of Félix Kochinski, Antônio Moterle, Luiz Maria and Vitório Moterle.
The district of Jardinópolis was established in 1965 within the municipality of Coronel Freitas. The new name of the settlement was coined by colonist Generino Ferrari.
The municipality of Jardinópolis was established by State Law No. 8,546 promulgated on 20 March 1992.

2 - In the central, yellow rectangle, two heads of bovine and pig, respectively, representing animal breeding, and two poultry birds, representing aviculture.
3 - On top of the lower, white rectangle, two plants of tobacco, another crop in Jardinópolis. In the rectangle's center, two Brazilian pines symbolizing rainforest and reforestation, with three logs below. A semi-circle shaped like a cogwheel representing industry.
In the center of the upper rectangles, a circle inscribing a hand and a tree seedling, as a symbol of reforestation, whose characteristic design also alludes to gardening, the town's namesake.
The crown surmounting the coat of arms, gray, with three towers outlined in grayish black and three red gates outlined in black, refers to liberty, union and commitment. The three red gates characterize liberty and equality between citizens, the town and the government.
