As we know the “clean marina” drive is not limited to the US, witness the
similar schemes in Australia and New Zealand. In this field Canada is active
as well – see these pages concerning British Columbia:
If the process of adapting best environmental practices to a marina is successful and officially recognized, “Georgia Strait Alliance awards the marina with an eco-rating certificate and a Clean Marine (ending in –e, jm) BC Flag”.
This flag is seen at the top of the first page linked to. Another example: http://www.murraycoellmla.bc.ca/media/resampled_MC~CleanMarineBC2008Jun13_500.jpg. But for the presence of the Georgia Strait Alliance logo, the flag in graphic form looks like this: http://www.georgiastrait.org/files/share/full_logo_with_text.jpg
WWhite field, the logo in the centre placed over two pale blue wavy lines and words “CLEAN MARINE BC” in dark blue (italic, without serifs) in the lower fly. The logo consists of a green anchor placed diagonally with the flukes towards the lower fly and a green disk in front of it bearing a white maple leaf, drawn as if in motion, with inner contour lines in pale blue.

I managed to snap a few photos of this flag.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/zscout370/5914687904/in/photostream is the
best photo I have of this flag; it is like the image above, but the colors
on my flag seem to be a bit lighter (maybe due to cloud cover, age of the
flag or due to the time of night) but it is clear that the logo is smaller
than the image we have now and the ratio is 1x2).
shows that the bottom of the logo is higher up than we have already.
