Jewel of the Nile

Question: Does anyone know where the idea for the Arab flag in the movie came from? Seems to me it resembles the Louisiana flag (the bird with the babies) except with no writing. Did anyone else notice this?

Question: The lead villain Omar bears a striking resemblance to actor Omar Sharif (although it isn't him). Was naming him Omar an in-joke or just coincidence?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Most likely a coincidence. It's a common Middle Eastern name.
