The Blue Flag 2012
Blue Flags are raised these days on 44 beaches and 3 marinas in Istria. The Blue Flag is a project for preserving the sea and coast which has been carried out in Europe since 1987 and includes beaches and marinas.
The Blue Flag symbolizes preserved, safe and pleasant environment for fun, relaxation and recreation. Beaches and marinas, which carry the Blue Flag, offer quality services, have a clean seacoast, and are tidy and adequately equipped. This prestigious symbol is awarded only to those beaches and marinas which meet all the requirements which are set according to individual criteria, but have in common the fact that they always take care of the quality of the sea and the coast, education and inform the public about environmental protection.
The award is valid for one year and has to be earned again each year. Even throughout the year when it is awarded the Blue Flag may be removed from the beach if the conditions get worse.
