WHAT IS THE PURPLE FLAG?
The Purple Flag accreditation scheme is a “gold standard” for town centres at night – similar to the Blue Flag for beaches – and recognises excellence in managing a thriving, vibrant early evening atmosphere and that a town centre is safe after 5pm.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Purple Flag aims to improve the public profile of early evening town centres and confidence by offering a safe night out by lowering crime and anti-social behaviour by making clean, safe and inviting environment a criteria for obtaining a flag.
