Through the US EPA Air Quality Flag Program, organizations across the country raise a flag every day to demonstrate how clean or polluted the air is. The color of the flag matches EPA's Air Quality Index (AQI): green, yellow, orange, red, and purple. On unhealthy days, people use information from the program to protect the health of their communities and know how to adjust physical activities to help reduce exposure to air pollution, while still keeping people active.
