Jul 03 - Jelly Fish Flag To Be Introduced

A new purple flag to warn bathers of the presence of jelly fish or other dangerous animals will be introduced in Gibraltar’s beaches.

These flags fly either on their own or with other coloured flags. If you see a purple flag, the water is not closed to swimming, but exercise extreme caution and keep a close watch for dangerous animals.

The Government is also reminding the public to pay careful attention to the beach flags when at the beach. The flags and their corresponding colour scheme are there to advise users as to the safety and state of the sea.

A spokesperson said: “Bathing is always at your own risk but understanding and heeding these coloured flags keeps you safe in the water and will help users to have a more enjoyable experience at the beach. A flag flying also denotes that lifeguards are on duty.”

As a reminder to the public, the other flags have the following meanings:


Yellow Flag - When ocean conditions are calm or moderate, but not life-threatening, users will see a yellow flag on the beach. It is safe to swim.

Red Flag – Red flags warn swimmers of severe hazards in the water. When this flag is up, the water is closed to swimming, as conditions are too dangerous for even the strongest swimmers.
