As Morski writes, ACI Marina Cres, one of the most beautiful island marinas along the entire Croatian Adriatic, raised the blue flag for the 22nd time on the eve of World Environment Day. The blue flag for beaches and marinas is a highly valued tourist brand which is recognised and appreciated across the world, and is an important landmark to seek out for tourists when choosing a holiday destination.

The blue flag is also the most recognised model of environmental education and public information awarded by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

The ceremony of raising the blue flag at ACI Marina Cres was attended by the marina’s receptionist Marijan Sablic and the German guests Ulla and Peter Fernitz, as well as the port captain of the Port of Cres, Djordan Veskovic. The director of ACI Marina Cres, Alan Sepuka, said on the occasion:

”The blue flag is a top tourist promotion in our opinion. It symbolises a well-preserved and safe environment, sustainable development in tourism based on high quality service, a clean sea and coastline and it speaks of the quality of the equipment and overall arrangement of ACI Marina Cres.

The blue flag for both beaches and marinas is part of an international environmental programme to protect the environment of the sea and coastline, which aims at sustainable management and governance of the sea and the general coastal zone. The blue flag is an award given only for one season at a time and the application for it to be flown must be renewed every year, meaning that ACI Marina Cres has done an amazing job in managing that for 22 years in a row.

The criteria for awarding the blue flag are very demanding and cover a number of areas: environmental education, public information, water quality, environmental management, as well as the safety and quality of services.

It is interesting to note that the blue flag is currently boasted by all ACI marinas open for business throughout the year, which confirms that ACI, as the largest chain of marinas in all of the Mediterranean, takes the proper care of the sea and the coastal zones in which they operate, and especially coastal areas such as beaches and marinas that suffer the most pressure.
