The Seven Elements

The Green Flag Award is based on the Seven Elements, the core of the Eco-Schools programme in every participating country.

We use an online application system, known as the Green Flag Journey, to help you to achieve your Green Flag Award. The Green Flag Journey ensures that you provide sufficient evidence for each of the Seven Elements and can achieve you Green Flag Award.
