Semaphore – Blue Flag’s new flag producer

After a call for tender was launched in June 2014 Semaphore has been chosen to produce our flags for the next five-year period.

A strong environmentally-friendly policy and a high level of customer service convinced the committee in charge of finding a flag producer to choose Semaphore as Blue Flag’s new partner.

All flags are exclusively produced in the EU and fully comply with the EU directive on eco-textiles. Furthermore, Semaphore will compensate the CO2emissions which are produced during production and transportation of the flags through FEE’s Global Forest Fund.

The national operators will now have the possibility to choose between two different flag materials for their sites. They can either choose the regular fabric or a new one, which is more resistant and therefore particularly suitable for sites with heavy weather conditions, or long seasons.
