Green Flag Award® Cemetery

Cemeteries, crematoria and burial grounds are often highly valued by the public. Not only do they provide a spiritual, tranquil place for friends and relatives to come to remember their loved ones, they can also provide communities with accessible green space of cultural, ecological and historic importance. The Green Flag Award® Cemetery recognises the importance of this type of space and rewards good management and provision.

In the 2022/2023 award season we had 20 awards presented to cemeteries, parks and reserves throughout New Zealand. Take a look at last years cemeteries parks and open spaces.

Join us this year, apply for a Green Flag Award® and celebrate your amazing space. To learn a little more about the Award, check out this video and then log in to and get your application in!
