Danger flags flutter over Golden Bay – but some still ignore them

The Malta Tourism Authority has issued a reminder to all Maltese swimmers and tourists they should not take the risk of swimming when two red flags are raised over the bay.

The Authority said that such flag displays are used in all bays under its surveillance and they should always be heeded and respected.

Such flag displays warn of danger levels and are moderated according to sea conditions. When two red flags are displayed, such as that displayed over Golden Bay today, people should refrain from swimming.

However, the picture shows that despite this strong warning there were still those who decided to take a swim.

The MTA said the bays under its observations maintain the highest international standards of safety and security. Warning flags are used in line with the International Lifesaving Federation’s (ILF) stipulations and these offer safety information for Maltese and tourist swimmers.
