Blue flag awards 2011

Blue flag programmeThe «Blue Flag» is a programme of environmental awareness and protection which is implemented every year, on a large scale, in more than 40 countries in Europe and other parts of the world by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

It aims at making marinas better and safer, while at the same time protecting their natural environment, so that we may always enjoy them. The Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature (HSPN) is responsible for the programme in Greece. It is the oldest conservation organisation in the country and has been active in environmental education and the protection of nature since 1951.

It is not easy for a marina to be awarded the «Blue Flag». It must meet 24 strict criteria, which have to do with the cleanliness of the marina, its organisation, the safety of its visitors, the protection of nature and environmental awareness. Even when a marina is awarded the «Blue Flag», it only keeps it that year and must prove that it deserves it for the following year. The inspectors of HSPN and FEE visit marinas throughout the bathing period and note any problems or shortcomings.
Usually a short period of grace is given to correct them, but a marina may temporarily, or even permanently, lose its flag for serious deficiencies.
