When Ator is gliding, you can see the flag of Bavaria on top of the castle he's passing.
The most famous version of this film (seen on Mystery Science Theater 3000) is the Film Ventures International version, called Cave Dwellers. Includes footage from the movie Taur the Mighty in the opening and closing credits.
