Port Stanley Main Beach is Awarded a Blue Flag Designation
May 15, 2018 - The Port Stanley Main Beach will be flying the Blue Flag again this
summer. The Flag will be raised on Thursday May 17, 2018, at 2:30 PM at 350 Edith
Cavell Blvd in Port Stanley, near the Main Beach Pavilion.
This is the 9th year that Main Beach has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag.
"People around the world look for the Blue Flag when choosing a beach to visit,"
said Mayor David Marr. "The Blue Flag at Main Beach in Port Stanley means that the
beach is clean, sustainably managed, and meets high safety standards."
Blue Flag is a world-renowned eco-certification. To receive a Blue Flag, beaches
and marinas must meet international standards in water quality, environmental management,
environmental education, and safety and services.
The Blue Flag is administered in Canada by Environmental Defense and is managed
internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).
