Cyprus Tourism Organisation celebrate Blue Flag anniversary


The Cyprus Tourism Organisation has hosted an event celebrating 20th anniversary of the Blue Flag certification programme on the island.


Held in Nicosia on October 9, 2015, the dinner was attended by Cyprus Tourism Organisation representatives, board members from the Foundation for Environmental Education (creators of the Blue Flag certification), members from the Cyprus Marine Environment Protection Association and others.


Cyprus is among the nations with the most Blue Flag awards as 57 beaches have picked up the certification to date.


Earlier this year the European Environment Agency also revealed that all bathing sites in Cyprus have excellent bathing water quality, giving it the highest possible rating across Europe.
