Blue Flag Swimming BeachesBack

 

The Blue Flag programme is active in over 42 countries around the world.  To achieve Blue Flag status, 33 main criteria covering four aspects of coastal management have to be met, including water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management, and safety and services.  Conceived in France in 1985, the Blue Flag programme is a recognised international accreditation initiative that acknowledges excellence in maintaining the highest standards of environmental management, safety, services and amenities.  Blue Flag beaches are awarded seasonally, and can be withdrawn at short notice should qualifying criteria not be fulfilled.  In South Africa, the programme is run by WESSA (the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa) in participation with municipal authorities.
