The Yellow Flag Programme must be supported in becoming a national programme. It must be mainstreamed. From there, it will have the capacity to do for diversity what another marvellous programme, the Green Schools/Green Flag Programme, has achieved for environmental awareness among the huge constituency of children, parents, teachers, and communities which it reaches out to so effectively across the State
