The arrowhead design of the title logo has changed every season. Season 1 had a flat arrowhead shape. Season 2 retained the same shape of the arrowhead as season 1, only dimensions were added to it. Season 3 is a completely different arrowhead shape design complete with engraved symbols. A few instances in Season 3 the logo changed to reflect the storyline. In Arrow: Draw Back Your Bow
(2014), the title arrowhead logo was that of Cupid's heart shape arrow. In Arrow: The Brave and the Bold
(2014), lightning was added to the logo as The Flash guest starred. In Arrow: The Return
(2015), the arrowhead logo reverted to the season 2 arrowhead when Slade Wilson returned. In season 4, the arrowhead has a bright green color. In season 5, it has a bright green color similar to season 4's, but bevelled with an inverted Y-shape at the bottom. See more
In the promotional picture for the series it shows a shirtless Oliver. The scars from his time on the island are visible, but there is no tattoo. During the series Oliver has a tattoo on his chest, a tattoo that plays an important role in at least one episode (1x03 "Lone Gunmen") and has been visible in every other episode. See more
It feels really good having you inside me... And by you I mean your voice. And by me I mean my ear. I'm going to stop talking. Right now.
That would be my preference.
The Warner Bros shield is colored green and behind it there are arrows flying. See more
