Launched in 2003, the Delaware Clean Marina programme pursues targets similar to other states. Good practices in preventing or limiting pollution are necessary given the fact that Delaware, a small US state, has nevertheless a long
coastline with about 100 marinas serving 46.000 local (registered) boaters: http://www.udel.edu/PR/UDaily/2003/cleanmarina062603.html.
"After taking the Clean Marina Pledge, marina operators have a year to work through the checklist and implement necessary measures to achieve a passing score. After completing a self-assessment, operators can call on mentors - other marina operators or advisory committee members - or the Clean Marina Office at Delaware Sea Grant for guidance. Once a marina operator is satisfied that conditions of the checklist are met, a visit with the Delaware Clean Marina Advisory Committee will be scheduled. Upon certification, a marina can use the 'Delaware Clean Marina' logo and flag in its advertising."
Following site lists important points of interest: www.gaelwolf2.com/dnrec/trib_times_2004_3_ib_clean_marinas.htm citing considerations for new or expanding marinas; marina design and maintenance; storm water management; vessel maintenance and repair; petroleum control; sewage handling; waste containment and disposal; marina management; laws and regulations; and boater education.
But to return to the above mentioned flag - see these sites for logo and photos of flag, respectively:

On a white field is placed a white (square) lozenge bordered blue (with a thin yellow stripe in the centre) bearing a blue-and-white compass rose having a small yellow lozenge in the centre; surrounding it are the words, in blue, 'DELAWARE / CLEAN MARINA' separated by small blue lozenges.
