Presentation of FNCP

FNCP (Fédération Nationale des Clubs de Plage - Beach Club National Federation) was created on 27 May 1989. The beach clubs are private structures proposing diverse recreational activities to children on beaches (during the day, and sometimes evening events such as barbecues for the whole families). FNCP has currently 110 members, which signed a quality charter set up in 1993.
FNCP is sponsored by Journal de Mickey, a youth weekly edited by the Disney Hachette Presse group. Journal de Mickey was published for the first time on 21 October 1934 by Paul Winkler, the founder of the Opera Mundi agency, who had purchased the licence for Disney cartoons in France. Publication stopped in 1943 but resumed in 1952 and was never interrupted since then.

The beach club OJEM, located in Le Touquet, north of France, has a specific flag, which is horizontally divided blue-white. On the OJEM website, the flag is shown on photographies and explicitely described as a rallying signal. There are indeed two OJEM clubs called OJEM Mickey and OJEM Jeunesse (Youth).
