GreenSpace chief executive Paul Bramhill and Green Flag award scheme manager Paul Todd have met with around 20 Scottish local authorities to discuss the scheme.
The major issue in expanding the scheme in Scotland is that it would have to be self-funding, unlike in England.
That means the process of application would cost around £500 more than the standard fee, which starts at around £175 and varies according to the size of the green space, said Paul Bramhill.
"There seemd to be significant enthusiasm for exploring how Green Flag might roll out in Scotland, and this year all authorities in Scotland are welcome to apply," added Bramhill.
