'Blue Flag' received by 12 beaches in Latvia this year

The coveted "Blue Flag" certification has been awarded to 12 Latvian bathing places and one marina in the summer season for 2024, according to the Foundation for Environmental Education.

The Blue Flag is a certification given to beaches by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). A beach that has been awarded the blue flag means that it meets the organization's standards of environmental management. These standards are for water quality, safety, and public environmental education.

Bathing sites have to meet 33 criteria, while marinas have to meet 38.
