What is Blue Flag programme?
AD Marina Bar has been awarded a Blue Flag in June 2017. The Blue Flag is an environmental award
given to marinas making a special effort to implement sound management with respect to the local
environment and nature, and providing users with information on environmental issues. To attain the Blue Flag, the marina has to comply with a number of criteria concerning environmental information and education, environmental management, safety and service facilities, and water quality.
The Blue Flag is awarded by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), a non-governmental environmental organisation and is represented by national organisations in each of the participating
countries around the world.
- The Blue Flag is an environmental award for beaches and marinas
- The Blue Flag is concerned with four main areas:
- Environmental education and information
- Environmental management
- Safety and service facilities
- Water quality
- The Blue Flag is only awarded for one season at a time and the award is only valid as long as the criteria are fulfilled. When this is not the case, the persons responsible at the local level must remove the Blue Flag;
- The national FEE organisation conducts control visits to the Blue Flag sites during the season.
