Purple Flag Initiative

Local authorities may accredit local areas as purple flag zones where they have reached a standard of excellence in the evening and night time economy. This could include, for example, the quality of night time entertainment and ease of movement in and around the area.

The awarding of a Purple Flag involves an accreditation process similar to the Green Flag award for parks and the blue flag for beaches.  It leads to purple flag status for town and city centres that meet or surpass the standards of excellence in managing the evening and night time economy. 

Carlow Town is in the process of applying for the standard supported by Carlow County Council and lead by County Carlow Chamber.
