Factual error: Captain Barbossa's ship has a modern Union Jack flying on the stern. The film is set in the reign of George II (1727 - 1760). The flag shown includes the cross of St Patrick, although Ireland did not become part of the United Kingdom until 1801, and the Union Jack at the time of the film would have comprised only the crosses of St George (England) and St Andrew (Scotland).

Revealing mistake: When Blackbeard threatens Jack with a pistol, he is heard cocking it, but when he holds it up to the camera we can see that it is only on half-cock. A pistol cannot be fired in the half-cock position, nor can it be loaded in the fired position, implying that either it is not loaded, or a technical error has been made by the film makers.
Factual error: After the mermaids scene, when Blackbeard, Jack, and the others start walking through the next island to find the silver chalices, two distinct bird calls can be heard. Both are native to Australia - they are the Magpie Lark, also known as the Peewee, and the other is the Willie Wagtail. Both birds are not found anywhere remotely near the Caribbean.
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, when Jack is talking to Angelica on the deserted island before leaving her, you can see the gold earring in her left ear in the shot over her shoulder facing Jack. In the next shot, over Jack's shoulder, her hair is covering her left ear. Then another shot from behind Angelica, and you can see her earring again. And a final shot from behind Jack, where Angelica's ear is covered again.
