Squire: Clear the road, if you will.
While Balian is in Sicily, some crusaders can be seen carrying a banner with the arms of Castile and Leon quartered. However, in the 1180s Castile and Leon were separate kingdoms; it wasn't until 1230 when they were reunited and the quartered banner adopted.
The opening 20th Century Fox logo has a ocher-yellow tint added to it.
