 What is a Green Flag Award?

 

The Scheme is a benchmark of national standards for parks and green spaces in the UK.

 

It was first launched in 1996 to recognise and reward the best green spaces in the country. It continues to provide a benchmark against which parks and green spaces are measured. It is also seen as a way of encouraging others to achieve high environmental standards to create excellence in recreational green areas.
