The Atlantic state of Connecticut has adopted a Clean Marina program: www.ct.gov/dep/cwp/view.asp?a=2705&q=323530&depNav_GID=1635.
"Connecticut's Clean Marina Program is a voluntary program that encourages inland and coastal marina operators to minimize pollution. The program also recognizes Connecticut's marinas, boatyards, and yacht clubs that go above and beyond regulatory compliance as "Certified Clean Marinas. All certified marinas will receive a weatherproof Clean Marina Flag to fly at their facility and authorization to use the Clean Marina Program logo on company publications."
According to the rules, the logo "may be placed on burgees, banners...".
It is a sea-green rectangle with rounded corners, bordered dark blue, around the state map filled in, as it were, by a landscape: dark blue waves under a light blue sky and to the left a white pole on which is sitting a white bird looking toward the right; a white interrupted horizontal line appears between waves and bird and the fourth of these five dashes bears what appears to be a rope fastening post as used on yachts. In the lower right appears the name, in dark blue, of the "Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection" accompanied by the seal, in full color, of this body.
Finding a flag photo was difficult and this one (clickable; unspecified marina) will have to do for the present:

Here is a better view of the flag (third photo from top - clickable): ourgreenwich.com/blog/2009/08/19/beacon-point-marina-receives-green-award. The seal of the Connecticut Dept of Environmental Protection is apparently only rendered in shades of blue whereas the Clean Marina logo has it fully coloured.
