What are the blue flags?

The Blue Flag is an award that is awarded by the FEE (Foundation for environmental education) only on a voluntary basis – to be clear, if it is not required there is no possibility that it will be obtained – and only if it meets certain water health requirements and quality of services offered to swimmers. The guiding criteria for the award of Blue Flags should be on the quality of bathing water, equipment, services, and environmentally policies. More than 4000 beaches obtained in the blue flags in the world, we see together all the criteria to be met.
