Ravenclaw Facts:

  • It hasn't escaped notice that for a House which commands intellect, creativity, and wit above all else, a majority of those under Ravenclaw all happen to be noted as quite attractive as well.
  • In the movies, Ravenclaw colors are silver and blue. In the books, Ravenclaw colors are blue and bronze.
  • In the Romanian version, the Ravenclaw house is changed to "Ochi-de-soim", literally "Eye-of-Hawk", possibly because ravens are better known as signs of death or danger, and the members of the house have a broader way of thinking, being smart and witty, thus the name of the house.
  • In the original Italian edition of first three books, the Ravenclaw's house name was changed to Pecoranera (black sheep). Subsequently, the name was changed to Corvonero (Black crow or Black raven).
