The blue flag
The Blue Flag is an initiative of the Foundation for Environmental Education in Europe (FEE) and is in Flanders coordinated by the Association for a Better Environment (BBL). Every year, coastal beaches, swimming pools and marinas can earn the so called blue flag. This quality mark is only valid for the period of 1 year. For the responsible managers, this is a stimulus to uphold the quality of their beaches, swimming pool or marina. Tourists who opt for a beach,swimming pond or marina with blue flag, are assured of a good quality and a thought-out management. See also The beaches of Den Helder up to and including Petten are safe and clean. Since many years The Blue Flag flutters on the beaches between Den Helder and Petten.
