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 two second-season episodes, chest compressions to restart Oliver's and Roy's hearts were done incorrectly. They are pushing down on the person's actual chest, rather than two finger widths above the sternum. That would damage the ribs, lungs and other vitals. See more
