Campaign kick-off by the President of Malta

date05. November 2018.

"Raise the Flag for the Oceans" campaign has officially started at the Golden Bay beach in Malta, on October 5th, led by H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, President of Malta, who has nominated H.E. Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, President of Portugal, to continue with concrete measures of extracting plastic and other marine waste from the ocean in Portugal.

WhiteFlag International is currently in the process of taking further concrete measures regarding protection and preservation of the beaches of Malta, with the ultimate target of making Malta the world's first plastic–free ocean country. After the certification process, the White Flag in Portugal will be risen, together with the nomination of another President or Prime Minister that will be chosen to clean one specific marine area or beach in the nominated country. We are excited to organise the campaign in Portugal and to see new nominations.
